Attendees embraced the grand theme of “Come Create With Us” as they took in the colorful dresses and pant suits that inspired smiles and joy. The presentation was a fantastic collective that brought out a live collaboration of female artists, incorporating visual artwork into show sets, live dance, music and performance. Each setting at the party all brought the clothes to life.

Trish Andersen (@trishandersenart) a Savannah-based fiber artist, Natalie Stopka (@nataliestopka), a visual surface artist, Mokshini (@mokshini), a fashion illustrator and storyteller, Grace Thomas (@gramasthomas), a jewelry artist, Samantha Urbani (@samandude), a musical artist, and Bec Adams (@billiebadams), a musician and DJ together made this artistic night special and memorable. A mural backdrop for the collection was live painted by Blair Brietenstein (@blairz), whose bold lines and colors were created as each look was placed against her artwork almost as a living installation.

Guests sipped complimentary refreshments from Grey Goose and Chandon while experiencing the interactive, curated space which included colorful murals, art pieces, and the latest collection.  Bec Adams set the mood for the evening with a curated DJ set and singer/songwriter Samantha Urbani performed original music for the attendees. Then a thrilling hip-hop dance trio was performed with choreography by Ebony Williams to the delight of the crowd.

Models were styled by Sofia Karvela with her led by TRESemmé Global Stylist Justine Marjan, makeup by Etienne Ortega for Deck of Scarlet, nails by OPI led by Alicia Torello, and shoes by Femme Custom Rings by Grace Thomas. Each look radiated bold head-to-toe color. Perfectly placed cutouts and refined details in gorgeous silky dresses (a tribute to alice + olivia’s classic goddess dress) create looks that are the living embodiment of each shade. An element of 70’s glamour and rock and roll was found throughout. Shiny accordion pleats on skirts and dresses, light-catching beadwork and sequins, and chunky chain belts and straps bring shine to every facet of the collection. Additionally, an homage to early alice + olivia embedded throughout the collection, like classic black-and-white tailoring that feels nostalgic yet distinctly modern.

All the while Bendet held court at the mesmerizing soiree. She stood in a flowing masterpiece of her own design as she spoke to the taste makers of town. What her show rhapsodized was pure magic – a feeling of bliss that we need more than ever today.
