RAINN Fashion Show Review!

Phew! I couldn't be happier to be over my fashion grief. I have to admit, RAINN On Common Ground was well worth the wait! The entire event could be described as an enchanting experience. Before entering the Rattlesnake Club, we were treated to a beautiful view of the sunset over the Detroit river. Inside, live mannequin models were strategically placed on blocks around the room, each showcasing stunning work. Tables on the outskirts presented pieces you could purchase right off the runway. The VIP row was lined with top-notch bloggers, stylists, and even Fox 2 News's style ambassador, Chuck Bennett. Not to mention the VIP bags filled to the brim with glorious goodies! The hosts, Ms. Michigan US Universal Sherlyn Fox, and Channel 4 News personality Jason Colthorp carried comical conversation and energized the crowd! They even managed to get the whole room to participate in the newest internet sensation, the mannequin challenge! Not going to lie, my right eye was twitching by the end of that. Hope that wasn't caught on camera xD The emcees Rat and Puff from Detroit's own 98.7 AMP Radio kept the jokes rolling, and even gave their best model struts! Unfortunately the models were the ones who really knocked it out of the park, sorry guys! Former and future pageant queens stole the show with intricate jewels and glittering crowns. Everything from chic lounge wear sporting Detroit pride by Detroit Rebels, to ruffled cropped blouses by June22 graced the white carpet. Not to mention some old favorites of mine, like the yellow raincoats by MPFashion, and bespoke leather bags by Beau Satchelle. With 14 designers displaying their work, the inspiration was endless on and off the catwalk! Being this was my first charity fashion show, it was heartwarming to hear representatives speak so passionately of their organizations. The proceeds went to benefit the RAINN, Common Ground, and Haven charities. Fabulous fashion, energetic emcees, hilarious hosts, and all for a caring cause? What more could this fashionista ask for? Thank you to Sherlyn Fox and Mila Pershyna for having us, and to the entire team for a lovely night!
