It was a rain-soaked evening at the beginning of May but as they say in show business, “The show must go on.”
On Thursday, May 2, 2013, Boston Proper and Achievement Centers for Children & Families held their 5th annual ‘Proper Affair’ dazzling those that braved the inclement weather with a fashion extravaganza. Despite the detrimental obstacle of nature, this year brought the five year total raised for Achievement Centers for Children & Families to $524,000. Thankfully, this permits the dedicated organization to continue to bring life-changing programs to low-income children and families in the local community.
It all began with a Red Carpet arrival to the Broken Sound Country Club. The cameras were flashing and there were champagne greetings for all.
Prior to the fashion show, guests were drawn to a wonderland of surprises with a multitude of irresistible auction items from couture handbags to exotic destinations such as an African excursion. Mike Perry did a fantastic job of bringing everyone’s attention to the main stage for a flawless digital presentation courtesy of MIG’s technology services, followed by spirited performances compliments of the Achievement Centers’ DrumLine and Elegant Emerald Dance Team.
Then the lights dimmed and the stage was set for all the fabulous fashions that graced the runway on stunning models. There was plenty of color in tantalizing tropical prints, relaxing resort wear, show-stopping skinny jeans and plenty of pretty accessories. Hair and makeup services were generously donated by PeterMark Salon.
Blue Martini provided cocktails and R-Styl kept the music coming as guests hit the dance floor to keep the evening going. After the trend-setting fashion show, many of the guests made their way over to the photo booth where they made memories in pink feather boas and oversized hats.
The 5th Annual ‘Proper Affair’ was a huge success and an affair to remember. It would not be fully possible without the generous support of Chico’s FAS, Boston Proper, Mast Global Fashions, PM Digital, RR Donnelley, Maggy London, InfoGroup, Muse, Kyra Kreations Inc., Jonden Manufacturing and Permit Fashion Group.
