Flashed: Take on Fashion in Beacon
Proceeds from the stylish event went to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. V.I.P. ticket holders sampled snacks from various Beacon establishments including Max's on Main, Beacon Bagel and the Beacon Falls Cafe. Pomegranate martinis were mixed to order in Echo's showroom-turned-lounge, and D.J. Wisdom was spinning late into the night.
Beacon residents strutted down the runway in knitted creations by Gail Travis of NFP Studio and one-of-a-kind dresses made from vintage fabrics by Allyson Vermeulen of By a Thin Thread. Echo Boutique staples also made an appearance on the runway, like Survival and Vintage Remix.
Echo owner Karen Donahue said she had a great time putting together the outfits for each model, and said Joshua Boos, creative director of Moxie Salon, was a terrific partner. "We have the same work ethic," said Donahue. "It worked out really well."
Here are some great pics from the event.
