This past Saturday, Macy’s held the “Putting It All Together Event” at The Galleria Mall. Select VIPs were treated to a fashion show featuring top must-haves of the Spring/Summer season.  The show, hosted by special guest Anthony Williams of Project Runway’s Season 7, featured four different segments, with looks for every occasion. The Summer segment consisted of flirty sundresses in bright colors with neutral pumps and metallic accessories. The Best of Prints segment included watercolor, ikat, floral, and geometric textiles. The Sparkle segment showed looks adorned with sequins, beads, metallic thread work, and rhinestones. Finally, the Black and White segment featured mostly white cocktail dresses with hints of black here and there, along with muted metallic accessories.

Midway through the show, Anthony chose two VIPs from the audience to compete in a styling competition. The contestants were presented with the following scenario: They are on a cruise and have just been invited to dinner and cocktails, which will be in exactly 10 minutes.  Thus, they had 10 minutes only to create a hot look appropriate for the occasion.  Behind the runway, an assortment of the season’s “It” pieces was available for the contestants to style their models. Team A’s look consisted of an INC shirtdress, Jessica Simpson pumps, and a BCBG handbag. Team B’s look included a BeBe strapless belted dress, Carlos Santana pumps, and a Michael Kors handbag. The audience was then asked to vote for their favorite look by applauding loudly. Team B won the contest, and received a $100 Macy’s gift card.

The show was a great success; with the VIPs purchasing looks right off the runway!  With everything a girl could possibly want to create awesome looks for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, I know I’m definitely going to Macy’s!  See you there!

A special thanks goes out to all of the behind-the-scenes staff that made this fabulous event possible: Alana Bryant, Shivana Narace, Elisa Santiago, Bri Sharpe, and Haley Walker. You ladies rocked!
