First Annual Branch Into FashionJuly 23, 2015
Crystal Phillips and Graham Daw founded the Branch Out Neurological Foundation in November 2010, with the hopes of this organization being able to eliminate over 600 neurological diseases that target at least 20% of the world’s population. So far, their funds have aided teams of researchers with the supplies they need to come up with preventative and curing medicines to treat those with affected nervous systems.
On June 15 2013, J’Adore Design and Events was proud to help this wonderful foundation put on a charity fashion show called, Branch Into Fashion, to support their researchers. 100% of the proceeds from this event went into the research of neurological disorders. This had also been the first fashion show the J’Adore team designed and planned back when we were formerly known as KS Events.
Branch into Fashion took place at the ATB Financial Arts Barn, where guests were welcomed into the mingling lounge with drinks. The night’s festivities were all being captured from our photographers, with 5 professional photographers stationed at our 16-foot long media wall taking Hollywood-glamour shots of guests walking down the red carpet; each guest got to enjoy this VIP experience.
After mingling hour, we started the show, showcasing looks from Shades of grey and The Helm, our models stole the show in costume with hair and makeup professionally done by local artists. All the ooh’s and ahh’s of that night were definitely being spent on them, and the singers/dancers that performed in between sets. Singer Valentina, who performed during the fashion show was accompanied with backup dancers from Rhythm FX, and singers ESMA and Arlo Maverick performed at the after party.
The J’Adore design team had transformed the runway room into an after party once the show was through. That runway room became electric and buzzing with nightlife. It was a scene you couldn’t miss being apart of. Dj Budakron kept everyone on their feet celebrating the success of our Branch into Fashion event. Big thanks to our sponsor Verve for helping us put on this fashion show for the Branch Out Neurological Foundation.
