On September 14th I had the pleasure to attend the most captivating fashion show by MIMI Tran. The Angel Orensanz Foundation was the perfect venue for the 'Colors of LIfe' Collection, featuring both ready to wear, formal wear and a breathtaking bridal gown. This vibrant collection bloomed with reds, pinks and aquas ; colors inspired by her 13 tear old daughter. . Of course, richly embellished black gowns were featured too, and this is my favorite, cropped to show off the magnificent detailing. ( photo- Gerardo Vitale )
In this lush display of dresses, will be your go to for your next event, whether it is to prom or to the red carpet. This collection was presented by the Aids Healthcare Foundation, and the multi- media presentation that started the show was heart-warming and timely.
I will warn you know that this post will be image heavy. Find a comfy chair. I will start with Getty Images taken by Arun Nevader for Art Hearts Fashion. Later, I will feature images from the floor, that while obstructed by other viewers ( who all seemed to be wearing hats!) will give you a chance to see this show as I did. I hope you enjoy both perspectives.
I will begin with the two dressed that received the most Ooh's and Ahhs! The model really knew how to move, this bridal dress was dramatic and so romantic. Shots below by Arun Nevader for Getty.
This sweep and details of this dress had the crowd well pleased!
