Saks Blogger Prom Fashion Presentation

Saks Fifth Avenue, in the Houston Galleria, has teamed with Houston Fashion Bloggers for the "Saks Blogger Prom Fashion Presentation," which will be held on Friday, April 5, 2013 from 6PM to 8PM - on level two (evening-wear department), inside Saks.

The event will feature six local fashion bloggers who will showcase prom-fashion looks, along with commentary on the looks.

The New Outlet (Blog) creator, Elvia Francis is among the local fashion bloggers selected for the event. The other bloggers include Imani Talib, Marcella Sky, Yesenia Flores, Taylor Brione, and Rachel White.

Attendees of the event will receive 20% off any full-price evening dress and bra purchase from the following brands: Chantelle, Wacoal, and Le Mystère.

Along with the fashion presentation, guests can partake in refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, have a chance to test hairstyles and dabble in cosmetics with MAC Cosmetics, and perfect their prom look inside an event-exclusive photo booth.  

Along with all the glitz and glamour, the event also is for a great charitable cause—benefiting Houston’s non-profit organization, Mia’s Closet, so please bring gently-worn dresses that will in turn be donated to the underprivileged.
