We are so excited to present our very first Fashion Couture Event Wednesday, October 28 from 7 - 9 p.m. at the new location for FASTFRAME next to Doug's Diner in the Front Range Village Shopping Center in Fort Collins!  You are probably wondering what on earth I am talking about...what is a Fashion Couture Event??


The Fashion Couture Event is a gallery art display created with Northern Colorado's top artists in fashion, make up and hair styling and four incredible high school students.  Here are three reasons why you want to be there!


1.  To support these amazing high school students!  These brave students are not professional models but they are members of the 2016 CSP Senior Model team.  They arrived early in the studio - probably the hardest part for a teenager! - and let MAC make up artist Sara Dozier transform them with her gifts of color, contouring and blending.  Then, Aveda hair stylist Ali Sherman, of Trios Aveda Salon and Spa, creatively styled each models locks with curls, braids and some aluminum foil (it was crazy!).  Everything came together when each model slipped into the apparel and accessories styled or created by Colorado State University Fashion Design student Kristi Davis.  By this point, it was apparent that this was no ordinary photo shoot! Totally, out of the box thinking inspired each model's look.  Unlike a Senior Portrait Session where the Senior is the highlight, this was an editorial fashion shoot to communicate what we see in young people in our community.  This generation is going to rock the world and we wanted to show their strength, confidence and beauty.  Photographing the models lasted until close to sunset on a scorching hot day in August and yet, these four teens were patient and positive, bringing the perfect energy to the photo shoot!


So, come and show some love for our models:  Michaela Kriewall and Holly Mack from Rocky Mountain High School and Jesse Goldstone and Hunter Davis from Fossil Ridge High School!


2.  Come on out to support Blake Miller!  Instead of ticket sales, we are collecting donations for a sweet little girl who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma this Summer at the age of 17 months.  She has bravely endured chemotherapy and surgery and appears to be on her way to a successful recovery!  Her Mom told me that she doesn't even cry when she has her blood drawn - what a strong little girl!  However, if you have battled cancer or know someone who has, you know that the scans and blood tests continue and the medical bills fill the mailbox.  Many of you know that I had my own battle with cancer two years ago.  Throughout my treatment, I remember thinking how much worse it would be to watch my child deal with the painful side effects.  The out of pocket expenses for Blake's treatment will be high.  Helping to offset the family's financial worry allows them to focus on the needs of their little girl.  So, please come by the Fashion Couture Event and consider a donation to offset the medical costs of Blake's treatment.  One hundred percent of donations collected for the Fashion Couture Event will be donated to the Miller Family.   If it is easier to donate online, click here to go to Blake's YouCaring page.


3.  While you are meeting little Blake and enjoying the artwork, munch on cookies from Mary's Mountain Cookies!  Yes, we will have these scrumptious cookies for all of our guests.  If you have ever had one of their cookies, you know this is where you want to head for dessert on Wednesday night!
