Thanks to Just Ask Boo, I recently connected with Maria Lesseur owner of Market Boutique just in time to participate in this Saturday’s first TRUNK SHOW. I’ll be joining some fabulous area designers: Soy Delicious Candles, Lexi Jewelry, Mary Maalouf, Andrea Guillard Viamonte, Jimmy Vee, Paper Squid, Beauty by Arbonne, and Bead’s by Daisy. We will all be showing our latest fashions, accessories and products so this is a terrific opportunity to see so many designers all in one location.
Not only will you get to sip delicious cocktails and see great new fashions, you will also be helping young women transition from foster care to safe, afforadable, independent living with the services of.Casa Valentina.

Market Boutique is located at 8851 SW 132 Street, Miami, FL 33176

After that, they are off to a NY after-party at Greenhouse. (Lucky bags!)
I’m physically here in Miami, but my inner designer is definitely right there in New York via the three tote bags that bear my name. For this event, editors from local & national press (hopefully all of the following): OceanDriveTime Out New YorkMiami HeraldPeople MagazineUS WeeklyW Magazine, VOGUEGlamourLucky MagazineNew York PostVillage VoiceWWD) get to view collections from many designers, while listening to music from unsigned & talented musicians. The fashion designers’ creations will be showcased on models strutting around the lounge. The event is sponsored by Eric and Luck, Sagatiba, and Starlite Shoes & Accessories. Celebrity guests will be in attendance including Isaac Mizrahi, Real Housewives of New York and New Jersey, MTV’s Real World contestants, America’s Next Top Model contestants, Malan Breton of Project Runway, Kristen Dalton – Miss USA.
Designers showcased will include: Aqua Vi, Gia Fragalli, Chak Chel, Debra Cortese, Peony by Sheerly Novian, and many others.
Once again, Jordana Engholm of Jordana PR has gone above and beyond the usual to create this innovative, intimate club event to promote the work of emerging fashion designers and musicians.
