Wednesday March 11th made for a wonderful evening at Saks Fifth Avenue, South Coast Plaza. Orange County shoppers and fashionistas, men and women alike, made their way around the ground floor of Saks, which was transformed into a mini runway show.
The event highlighted “What’s Next” for Spring/Summer 2015. The latest trends from the likes of Alex + Olivia, Elizabeth and James and Rebecca Taylor showcased striking white balanced by leather accessories in neutral shades. We also saw cut outs and geometrics and floral in bold color and dazzling sequins.
The bartender poured the ever-so-stylish “Kir Royale (champagne) cocktail made with Chambord and a delicate raspberry. The beverage complemented the burger sliders, grilled cheese and fries. A colorful candy tray reminded everyone that spring was in the air!
Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy gave the ladies glam hairdos, camera ready for the red carpet like backdrop. Giant Entertainment spun sophisticated versions of the latest tunes, only stopping to announce lucky winners of the Instagram contest who received Saks shopping and spa gift cards courtesy of the Saks marketing team!
Overall, this Orange County fashion, shopping event made a school night more bearable (and wearable) and prepped the attendees to return on Saturday March 14th for a meet and greet with fashion designer Rebecca Taylor.
