Arte Fashion Museum In Atlanta
Friday evening the W Downtown Atlanta was the swank locale for a charitable event, the Arte Fashion Museum, where proceeds benefitted the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Before the show guests mingled in the Drink Shop, enjoying complementary cocktails and samples of Chef Jason Ellis’ (Hell’s Kitchen) delicious menu. A fashion exhibit, where models posed un-moving among artistic set designs, was on another floor. Soon after viewing, guests transitioned again for the main event, the runway show.
Select designs from New York designer Celestino Couture, Slovenia’s duo MEM Couture, and Annette Bertin from Atlanta were showcased. Model Jaslene Gonsalez from America’s Next Top Model fame, graced the runway and closed the show. Special thanks to DeeDee Cocheta and ABC Publicity for the invitation and the W Hotel staff for hospitality! Continued success to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and much appreciation for their continued efforts to improve the lives of children with terminal illnesses.
