The Palms Hotel ballroom was enchanted by the beauty of Eva Marcille from America’s Next Top Model as she hosted this grand affair. “She so pretty it looks like she is floating through the air” was one of the comments of the audience while Eva was walking the runway looking exquisite in a mocha-beige dress that matched her spotless olive skin and stunning hazel eyes. Fashion in the City is a Las Vegas showcase with ten emerging designers from Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The event represented culture, diversity, opportunity, excitement and community service. This traveling fashion extravaganza with people from different ethnic backgrounds showcased their extraordinary talent, and of course the incredible team of correspondents were there to witness it all.
These impressive designers are reported to be a part of this diverse fashion show sharing a common goal of giving back to communities all over the United States and future goals of giving back all over the world. Fashion in the City allows aspiring clothing designers the opportunity to showcase their fashion collections of the future. This allows both designers and models the opportunity to bridge the gap from aspiring to professional
through this rivaling platform.
A portion of the proceeds from the fashion show will be given to Children’s Hospital of Nevada at MUMS Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for premature and ailing babies. “We are very grateful to Fashion in The City for donating. These tiny babies are often born weighing only one pound, and they need all the help we can provide them to have a healthy start,” said UMC CEO Brian Brannman.
Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC is devoted to making sick and injured children healthy and well by combining compassionate, family-centered care with modern technology. UMC has a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit which provides newborn infants the compassion and care they need. These newborns have a wide range of illnesses from congenital and acquired conditions. The hospital has infants in the NICU as early as 23 weeks.
