Huntsville, Alabama Fashion and Entrepreneurial Spirit Is Thriving and Vibing
On Saturday, January 24 at The VIBE Downtown, the Alabama Fashion Alliance hosted a Pop Up Shoppe. Local business owners showcased their talents which ranged from jewelry makers, bath and beauty products, fashion designers and more. Guests were encouraged to check out the vendors, sample goodies, enjoy wine and food, network and shop.
The Vibe was relaxed and felt as if you were among a group of friends. All of the business owners were warm and welcoming as patrons walked the beautiful hallway, looking to the left and right, admiring what the business owners offered and also enjoying the beautiful hard wood floors, exposed duct work, brick and overall design of The VIBE Downtown. Guest also enjoyed wine, light hors d' oeuvres and dessert while shopping and networking.
During the evening, Alabama's Fashion Alliance founder and also designer Ellena LeJeune presented some of her latest collection. Models walked the hallway and into a room where guest set and admired alluring pieces that consisted of gorgeous kimono blouses and jackets.
Also showcasing beautiful fashion was designer D'An Harrold of Model Haven Boutique. Her vibe and collection was inspired by her favorite city Paris. It included florals, butterflies and other fabrics and colors that gave the feel of “A Spring Time in Paris”.
