We all came together to raise money and support a greater cause than ourselves. That will definitely leave a lasting impression in people’s minds. I already knew this was a great cause to be involved in but it turned out better than I could have ever expected. I was really impressed with all the strategic planning and coordination that went into pulling this event off. It definitely is on par with any fashion show at Mercedes Benz Fashion week in New York. – Hanh Dang/Lucy Dang (Presenting Designer)

The show went very well. Everything flowed so smoothly. Everyone worked well together and the talent was amazing. I left feeling like I just came from Hollywood…Everyone was so kind to me, warm, and friendly. – Kyle Ramirez/Playful Ambitions(Presenting Designer)
