Keeneland Concours d'Elegance HANGAR BASH 2011
What a fabulous evening it was for two of Lexington Fashion Collaborative's designers Soreyda Benedit and Maui Crane as they displayed their creations during at fashion show at this years Keeneland Concours d'Elegance Hangar Bash! After the annual car show, a snazzy soiree was held in an airplane hangar at the Lexington airport. There were cars, amazing aircraft, great food, haute fashions, and even a salsa band complete with latin dancers! What more could you want from a summer night?!
A group of models including myself from the LFC put on a show for the crowds and wowed them with Soreyda Benedit's impeccable fashion designs and Maui Crane's exquisite accessories.
"Historically, Concours d’Elegance, or “a gathering of elegance,” originated in Paris during the 1920s. The Concours quickly became not only an event for automobile manufacturers to parade the latest edition of extravagant automobiles, but also a spot for fashion designers to showcase the latest styles. The Keeneland Concours d’Elegance is pleased to bring this tradition to Kentucky in celebration of the automobile, which consistently ranks in the top 10 attractions and events of Central Kentucky as awarded by Southeast Tourism Society and Kentucky Tourism Council." ~ Julie Meador for UK News
I am already looking forward to next year!
