The Glitz & Sass Holiday Fashion Show
The Fashion Event of the Season
After you hand over your keys to the valet waiting to park your car, you step onto the red carpet as cameras flash, ready to snap a picture of you looking your sassy best. You pose with your best gal pals, before checking in and enjoying free wine, door prizes, giveaways, shopping, appetizers—and a New York fashion week style runway show.
No, you’re not dreaming—you just attended the 2013 Glitz & Sass Fashion Show, presented by Sassy Magazine!
This year, the Glitz Factor of Glitz & Sass was taken up a notch with a brand-new (and beautiful) venue on November 14th, 2013. The Morris Inn, one of the co-sponsors of the fashion show, hosted the event in the gorgeously recently renovated luxury inn, right on the campus of Notre Dame.
“The Glitz and Sass Fashion Show was an amazing start to glam up the season and help with a style pick-me-up for the holidays,” says Morris Inn employee Heather Goralski, who helped to coordinate the event. “Morris Inn was thrilled to host this beautiful occasion which brought together many local businesses and elegant guests from our community. We were thankful to be a partner in this stunning event!”
Women from all over the Michiana area put their sass on attended the fashion show, where they enjoyed some good quality “girls time.” Everyone who came also got the chance to see our 2014 Class of Women to Watch, who were highlighted during the show, along with past members and cover models. For the staff here at Sassy, the event was a wonderful way to connect with the women who are making a difference in the community—and just plain fun to see all the fashionable ladies in our area!
“EVERYONE there had an incredible time!” says Kathy Solin Miller. “[We] loved the gift bags, coupons and extra surprises!” And among the fun? Along with loads of incredible giveaways from local boutiques and sponsors, one lucky Sassy lady walked away with $3,000 worth of spa products from The Centre, P.C.!
All of the boutiques at the show worked the runway—with a few special audience member surprises thrown in for fun! The featured fashions ranged from the perfect holiday outfit to kids’ clothing and high-fashion straight from fashion week.
And as Glitz & Sass is all about, fashion goes beyond surface-deep. Lori Miller, whose mother, Sharie Conard, owns Studio One Boutique, brought her daughter with her to the show, explains: “Your show helped her see things differently and what she is missing. I have a new appreciation for fashion shows!” Lori says.
All of the seven local boutiques who brought their fashions to the show—Flourish Boutique, Jules Boutique, Clothes Mentor, Stephenson’s, Inspire Me, Boling Vision Center and Cinnamon Stick—also provided plenty of shopping opportunities for the lucky ladies who attended the show. Other local businesses were also in attendance to share their holiday goods.
"Glitz & Sass Holiday Fashion Show was a great success!” gushes Betsy Tavernier, Publisher of The FAMILY Magazines. “We had over 400 guests and over 100 models at The Morris Inn to see the fabulous fashions of 7 local boutiques. All who participated certainly helped us put on one fantastic evening!"
Sassy Magazine would like to thank the sponsors of the Glitz & Sass Show once again—Tiedemann Wines, b on the River Bakery & Café, Classic Image Photography, The Centre P.C. and The Morris Inn for helping to make it a truly memorable event. We hope to see you all at Glitz & Sass next year!
