Firebrand Fashion Show
Leading edge fashion arrived at the Montage on Oct. 21, when Firebrand Media held the premiere of Laguna Style. At the reception, more than 250 stylish guests sampled culinary creations prepared by Montage chefs, along with specialty drinks featuring Tequila Ocho, Right Gin, and Kübler Absinthe for the truly adventurous. Models showcased exquisite cashmere and wool fashions from Loro Piana, as well as Mikimoto pearls that would be the envy of every oyster in the ocean. A highlight of the reception was a silent auction to benefit SchoolPower, a charity that has provided support for Laguna Beach school programs for 30 years. Afterwards, guests moved into the ballroom for a runway show — equal to any in New York or Paris — where the audience was wowed by La Perla lingerie; more extraordinary jewelry from Mikimoto; and head-turning fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue.
We were thrilled to bring some of South Coast Plaza’s leading luxury retailers to Laguna, and to have such an enthusiastic reception from the community. Look for more in the future! – Chris Schulz.
