SACFW Boutique Showcase Recap

Sacramento Fashion Week’s 10th annual Boutique Show sold out the Auto Museum. The Boutique Show itself was adapted only a couple of years ago, but you’d never be able to tell from the pristine runway and production of the show.  It was brought about to showcase what Sacramento has to offer.  To encourage attendees and anyone who hears about it to support small businesses.

Guests made their way through the museum entrance which lead to a photo opportunity to capture your red carpet looks for the night.  From there guest were free to explore the California Automobile Museum.  Many of the cars were set off in eye-catching displays.  Approximately 25% of the vehicles here are currently owned by the California Vehicle Foundation and the rest are displayed by private exhibitors.  Some of the cars here were on loan so the displays are constantly changing exhibit of rolling stock every few months.

Before the runway showcase started guest got to visit pop up stores of the featured boutiques.  These booths lined the entrance of showcase room.  Sponsors and partners also showed presents with displays.  Ettore’s European Bakery & Restaurant had a huge cupcake display complete with eatable SACFW logos.  The display itself was topped with a mini mannequin dressed in a couture icing.

When the curtain opened for seating, the staging unveiled a white runway lined with a red stripe. At the beginning of the runway was a giant red stiletto sculpture, measuring 9 feet tall and 10 feet long. This was lent from the WEAVE foundation to SACFW in honor of WEAVE’s Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event that happens April 23rd 2016.

About The Author

I graduated from UC San Diego with a degree in Art History. I am currently attending Sacramento City College and working towards supplementing my education with certificates in both Graphic Communication and Fashion/Apparel Design and Production. I like to call myself a "forever tourist". With an open mind, there is always something new to get excited about, even after living in the same place for a long time. I believe this approach to life helps me improve my skills as a graphic designer. I have many hobbies including making sets on Polyvore, teasing my two little sisters and eating cake pops until I pop!
