Recap: Goodwill Blue Party

It was the first one ever! The Goodwill Blue Party was a stylish success, featuring impressive re-purposed fashion created by seven local Las Vegas fashion designers and raising money to fund this non-profit organization whose mission it is to provide job training and job placement for residents of Southern Nevada.

I had the best time ever, bringing along with me three of my best and most fashionable friends. We enjoyed perusing (and bidding on) the silent auction, socializing with other chic friends, sipping bubbles from the bottle at our table and watching an excellent fashion runway show.

Food and beverages were provided by Imperial Wine Wholesalers, Johnson Brothers, Mundo (my favorite Latin restaurant in Las Vegas), and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Below are fashion highlights from the event. I lucked out with a table right at the end of the runway (or maybe Goodwill was just being generous to me – either way, I’m grateful). To learn more about Goodwill of Southern Nevada or to make a donation, visit www.sngoodwill.org.

This outfit was my favorite.

  1. Thank you for your blog. Everyone connected with this was a volunteer: the models, stylists, MUAs, photogs, everyone. And watching the runway show who would have guessed that this was the first runway for most of them? They went to 5 model practices and arrived on the day of the show by noon. Beautiful people putting on an incredible show for a wonderful cause.
    But the two that stirred the drink, gave the show its energy and made it happen were Jessica Milazzo of Goodwill and Aldo Mencatto, the clothing designer. They put in so many more hours than anyone, Jessica was always there and always on top of everything. You just knew that every detail would be attended to. Aldo worked so hard with the models. He worked for a good while after a practice with a model and I said something about Aldo putting her thru her paces. She then told me “no, no, not at all. He’s not critical at all. He works with me because he believes in me and wants me to be my best and I will.” That’s the “Aldo Way”, the same at his restaurant. I’m confident that if Jessica or Aldo walked up to any of us, everyone’s response would be the same as mine. “What do you need? How can I help?”
