Fashion at the Wine and Food Festival

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.

This was our fifth year with the Wine and Food Festivities and to tell you the truth our talent is like wine the older we get the better it produce.

Among some of the designs were The Dear Sweet Cupcake Dress designed by Christian Tinson and the Marshmallow Fondue dress Designed by Lorena Pires that placed first place. The garments all were crafted to resemble a food or to have some type of food included in the garments. The show was a success. We look forward to next year’s showing.
