Neiman Marcus Fashion Show to Benefit Children's Hospital Association

This one is for the Fashionistas who love the “the list” by Neiman Marcus! The event was hosted by Catherine Loose, who is the Public Relations Manager for the Minneapolis Neiman Marcus store in Gaviidae Commons, and it was called “The Art of Style” fall 2012 trends!

With Models and Hostess

What made this event even more spectacular was its purpose of supporting a worthy charitable cause. On behalf of the North Oaks Lunch Bunch Guild, the entire proceeds from this event were raised to benefit the Children’s Hospital Association in St. Paul, MN.

Drawing the Fabulous NM Gifts

It was my pleasure to mingle with guests as they sipped on champagne and nibbled on delicacies, all leading up to a display of this seasons fashion trends. For those of you who weren’t with us…here is a rundown of “the list”:

Mixed Greens – Solo or in combination, greens spruce up any wardrobe.
The Jacket – Goes over everything-keep it top of mind.
The Smoking Slipper – The luxury loafer is flat-out chic.
The Leather Leg – Second-skin light or cut like trouser, leather has legs.
Navy: The New Neutral – Pair it up with black or brights.
The Statement Handbag – Size, shape, and details speak volumes.
Borrowed From the Boys – Menswear influences tailor-made for her.
Digital Prints – Patterns made modern.
Brooches – One adds newness, a cluster adds drama.
The Fall Face – Get juiced with the cherry lip.

I have to say my personal favorites this season are; Navy with black, a Leather Leg, and Brooches. Since I was a young girl, I have loved the brooches in my Mother’s jewelry box. They are fantastic to add to a wrap, sweater or lapel.

I want to send out a big “thank you” to the wonderful Holly Ernst (Mrs. Minnesota International 2003) and her mother-in-law Kathryn Ernst and sister-in-law Caroline Fortmeyer for inviting me to this lovely event, which was followed by an unforgettable dinner at the new location of Oceanaire!

Also my appreciation goes to the many devoted organizers who were so welcoming, the stunning models, and Neiman Marcus for its generosity. And finally, it was a pleasure to meet the beautiful ladies who showed up to share in the fun and support a good cause, including a local broadcast talent, who may have posed in a photo with me (Vineeta Sawkar with the ABC Affiliate KSTP, her mother and friends).

With sincere appreciation,

Sarah Bazey
Mrs. International 2012
