This past Friday, August 03, 2012 I attended ‘Rare Bird’ a Fashion Show brought to Phoenix by Nostra Style House located on Roosevelt Row in Downtown. The event was held at local nightclub and concert venue the Monarch Theatre also located Downtown. With music pumping, a live performance by the Dulce Dance Company to open the show and a fashion showcase featuring Finders Keepers, Belle of the Brawl, Arte Puro, Keepsake ,and Gentle Fawn the event was anything but boring!
Let me give you a little background on Nostra Style House. The newest edition to the hip shops in Roosevelt Row, Nostra Style House is an adorable little boutique offering independent labels to fashionista’s here in Phoenix. Run by the charismatic and lovely Angelica Gonzalez, who I had the pleasure of meeting during the Arizona Blogger Conference back in April, the shop is a dream for the stylish Phoenician’s looking for sophisticated, show stopping pieces. All designer collections featured in Friday’s showcase can be found at Nostra Style House, so you locals better not hesitate to stop by and take a peek!
I attended the show with local Phoenix bloggers Angela and Aggie. Dressed to impress, us local bloggers made sure to be noticed without losing that professional edge. It didn’t hurt that photos were taken of our ensembles as our entry into a style contest hosted by Nostra Style House. Facebook fans will have the power in deciding the chicest look and the winner will receive a dress by featured designer Keepsake! How awesome is that?! I’ll keep you posted on the details because I would love your help to win;)
All in all, the event was a total success for Nostra Style House and the featured designers. The atmosphere, the crowed and the venue had such an energetic and fashionable vibe that apparently I needed to see in my new city! A very special thank you to Angelica for the invitation and the great show. Congratulations on an amazing event!
Nostra Style House is located at 906 N. 6th Street, Phoenix, AZ 854004
P.S. What I wore to the event later this week, so stay tuned!
