It was everything fashion on Aug. 23 when the Glendale Galleria hosted a fashion show to showcase its upcoming line of new retailers that includes Bloomingdale’s, Silver Jeans and Shasa.
The event, emceed by Darren Radeff, honored several key Glendale and Pasadena philanthropic organizations: Huntington Library and Gardens, Ascencia, Hathaway Sycamores, Child S.H.A.R.E., Glendale Arts and Renal Support Network (RSN). Familiar faces, including Elissa Glickman from Glendale Arts and Kevin Roberts of Glendale Adventist Medical Center, were seen on the catwalk, modeling top fashions.
Glendale Galleria produced all elements of the professional fashion show including stage, sound, lighting, music, emcee, script writing, styling, etc. Fashions reflected products available at Galleria merchants. For their efforts, each philanthropic partner received a donation via an American Express Gift Card of $500.
The goal of this event, according to organizers, was to generate excitement toward the opening of the new Bloomingdale’s along with the 32 new retailers who will also open this fall, generate sales and traffic to existing tenants, create some PR buzz and foster continued support and partnership within the community.
