On October 21st, Logan Square was visited by couture designer Vernaccia Etienne, as seen on TLC’s “Hayley Ever After.” Not only did the event provide mimosas, because it was Sunday, after all, but it brought a bigger sense of purpose. That purpose, was bringing the community, one fashion piece at a time.
Not only was I able to eye all of the beautiful clothing around me, I also got to purchase pieces. But the best part of all was that the event was non-profit, to raise awareness to recidivism, which is the tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend.
The event was social, buzzing, and exciting–it truly was a SCENE. After mimosas, the creator of the collection went to talk on a panel. It was really inspiring to see a girl boss doing what she loves. After the chat, the floor was opened for questions.
Vintage and Mimosas was a great event for people who want to immerse themselves in the world of vintage fashion. Vintage fashion isn’t just some old clothing–it’s more than that. It’s an expression, a style, a voice you use, when you put on that vintage piece. It’s history, and don’t we all want a little piece of history with us?
This event really opened my eyes to what fashion is, because, in reality, clothing isn’t just an article, it’s a way to show who you really are beyond just clothing. Thank you, Vintage and Mimosas, for having the opportunity and sharing this with the folks of Logan Square.
