On April 5, 2012 the Fashion Honors Group volunteered their time and services at the Yelp company party held at the National Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. The V.I.P. party started at 7:00 pm and then it was open to the public from 8-11 pm. The Fashion Honors Group planned the fashion show with a 50’s and 60’s inspired look that included garments that students from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale created. The project managers for this event were Fallon Roy, Kayley Stewart, and Emily Freedman.

Our own photographer Humberto Vidal was also in attendance taking pictures of the event and during the fashion show. Also sighted at the party were Dr. Andre West and Crisa Tatakis. During the party, music, food, and entertainment were all provided by local businesses promoting their brand for free.

On April 20th, 2012 The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Honors Group collaborated with Paula Prendergast for The Las Olas Wine and Food Festival. The pre-VIP show was wonderful and featured themed garments such as The Burnt Breakfast, Butterscotch Candy, Grapevine, Saki, Bottle of Wine, Pineapple, and The Las Olas Wine and Food Festival couple.

Unfortunately we got rained out because we were in the middle of Las Olas Boulevard and we were not able to showcase all of the amazing designs. Mangos Restaurant and Lounge came to our rescue as they surprised us by allowing us to go through with our fashion show on their dance floor. Dr. Andre West and Chrisa Tatakis were within the attendees and project managers included Daniela Neira, Alexandra Rouzier, Gabrielle Cohen, and Brittany Vasquez.
