Avenue Rouge Fashion Show

Last Thursday, Beau and I (along with friends, Johnny and Patrick - the two inside in the picture above) attended 225 Magazine and InRegister's Avenue Rouge Fashion Show. I have to say - we were very impressed with the whole production, and we had a great time! The venue was one of the coolest parts. (For readers outside of Baton Rouge, movies are staring to be filmed here instead of LA or Hollywood because of tax credits and other financial incentives.) Celtic Media Center is where many of the movies are filmed here, in Baton Rouge, and it was the perfect backdrop for the night's events.

This year, New York designer, BB Dakota was the show's main designer, but local boutiques also participated in the runway show. Beau, myself, and our friend, Patrick were actually asked to walk in the show for a local men's suit shop, but in the end, Beau and I didn't make the cut. Bummer! So from the perspective of a viewer, everything from hair and make-up to the clothes to the runway felt to surreal and NOT Baton Rogue. It was pretty incredible. Then, there's the icing on the cake: open bar and complimentary food. Umm...let's just say I didn't drive home...
