“Try to be like the turtle – at ease in your own shell,” said the American poet, Bill Copeland, on embracing one’s own uniqueness. On Thursday, August 25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Grand Court at The Gardens Mall will transform into an extravagant world of couture, compassion, and personal style at #LMCFashBash. Powered by fashion, champagne, and Instagram, #LMCFashBash will have the stylish set of Palm Beach County hitting the runway to pay homage to one of South Florida’s most beloved creatures – the sea turtle.
Hosted by The Gardens Mall, PNC Bank, and Loggerhead Marinelife Center, the two-hour, high-flying fashion circus will feature local personalities modeling the season’s most iconic designs by Saks 5th Avenue, Lilly Pulitzer, Johnny Was, J. McLaughlin, Bloomingdale’s, Robert Graham, Eileen Fisher, ILORI Optical, Tommy Bahama, and more. #LMCFashBash Alumni and WPTV/WFLX news anchor Jay Cashmere, and Emily Pantelides will emcee this fabulous event.
