Fashionistas from Ajijic, Lake Chapala, Mexico
Congratulations to Director/Choreographer, CeCe Girling and Backstage Manager, Nicole Sergent for a hugely successful and entertaining 10th Annual Fashion Show to benefit the Red Cross in Chapala and presented by the Crux Rojo International Volunteers.
This year’s theme was A Tribute to the Fashion Capitals of the World and it was, indeed, a great tribute to the entire fashion industry.
I was able to convince my husband to accompany me to this fabulous event as both our daughters were two of the gorgeous models in this year’s show.
He was pleasantly surprised by the fact that many other men were also in attendance.
The show was very well attended and a lovely buffet was served prior to the fashion show itself and one could barely hear oneself think for click of cameras and various other digital recording devices.
What makes this fashion show so special is the choreography and fun that all the models are having as they displayed the beautiful garments from local and Guadalajara designers.
Local designers represented were Tina Jones, Mi Mexico, Alma Gutiterrez Fashion Designs, Opus Boutique, Fiaga Boutique and Heather’s Imports.
From Guadalajara there was MG Mendoza, Romanov and Lidia Elizarraras.
Some of my favorite outfits were the painted silk dresses from MG Mendoza but all the outfits were wonderful.
The models ranging in age from teens to golden years were all extremely professional and all the scenes were executed with precision and were very entertaining as the interaction among them was great fun to watch.
We watched the characters walk through the streets of Paris, Milan, London and New York while wearing beautiful and exciting designs.
Dario and his staff donated the entire day to makeup and hair design and thanks also go to Yoly and Edith for hair design.
The special sponsor was Leguas Tequila and the Hotel Real de Chapala did a magnificent job of hosting the event.
I highly recommend that you attend this wonderful, colorful event next year.. You will not be disappointed by the degree of professionalism exhibited by everyone involved in this most worthwhile fundraising event for our very own Red Cross in Chapala.
