It’s here! The most wonderful time of the year, filled with parties, food, gift giving, decorating, galas, and oh so much more (including having to put up wth that one relative once a year — you know, we all have one!) It is also our favorite time because we are preparing to host our 3rd Annual Toys for Tots Fashion Show! If you have not had the opportunity to attend this very anticipated event, let us fill you in on what you’re missing!
Giving, Children’s Smiles & Toys, Oh My!
R.S.V.P. Please by December 4th
PLEASE BE SURE TO BRING A NEW, UNWRAPPED TOY, OR IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE TIME TO PICK ONE UP THEN ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS DONATE $30 AT THE DOOR AND THE OWNER OF THE DARIEN TOY BOX WILL PROVIDE ONE FOR YOU. WANT TO BRING MORE THAN ONE TOY? HEY, WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE GIVING! Imagine a little boy or girl waking up to nothing — nothing to open or play with — no good memories about the holidays — But your gift can put a huge smile on a child’s face! Let’s collect more toys than we have the past 3 years! We know it can be done, and we know the generosity of all our customers and friends! Please feel free to bring a friend!
Models, Fashion & Accessories, Oh My!
Each year 25 to 30 models volunteer their time and strut down our runway in the most enviable pieces, with ooooh’s and ahhhh’s from fellow attendees (and fashionistas)! This year our models will show off beautiful sportswear, cocktail dresses and gowns, from designers such as Teri Jon, Komarov, Alberto Makali, Joseph Ribkoff, and more. You will also see one-of-a-kind accessories by local designers like Charlotte Meyer, whose eye-catching necklaces are carefully chosen to compliment the clothing we have in the store. Another favorite are Lauren Hampton Designs’ stunning and unique belts that are truly art for your waist. Whether you are looking for a small piece or something a bit more on the wild side, Lauren has it or can make it. Oh, and we forgot, the most tantalizing, sparkling Swarvovski crystal necklaces, to match our Red Carpet worthy gowns!
Hair, Makeup & Lashes, Oh My!
All the models (if they so choose) are treated to blow-outs, hair styling and makeup by the talented team of pros at Andrew Stefanou Salon & Spa. Dee and Andrew Stefanou, Owners of the salon, delight in giving back, and have been our go-to salon for our models for the past 3 years. They generously give an enormous amount of time and energy the day of the Fashion Show, making sure each lovely lady is made up to perfection, and each hair is in it’s place in time for our models to walk the Catwalk!
Food, Wine and Shopping, Oh My!
What else can you look for that evening? Delicious bites of food, catered by Festivities of Norwalk and beverages will be served all evening as you shop and mingle before and after the Fashion Show.
We look forward to seeing you there for this fun event that has a mission: The mission is to collect more toys than we ever have! After all, isn’t it giving, loving and caring about our fellow man, woman and child what this season is really all about?
