One of the most successful Fashion Forward events was the Three Year Anniversary of the Fashion Forward series with an amazing show from Betsey Johnson. The theme for the night was “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not” with décor that was modern and hip but had a country western twist.
Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations put together a special sound and light show, as the models walked the runway, which wrapped around the W pool. Models threw flower petals and handed out roses to guests before and after the show, while a hip hop dance group did a performance to a mix of hip-hop and dance music that kept viewers enthralled during intermission.
Guests were also provided with bright pink Betsey Johnson swag bags full of fun and useful goodies such as a stylish Betsey Johnson purse with lotion and perfume, Neuro drinks and coupons for vendors such as Sushi Roku.
Models for the show were from Ford Modeling Agency and Kensignton provided hair and makeup.
