Fash Bash 2017 did not disappoint. Oh sure the fashion show was amazing. Lots of vibrant colors and fashions that were outside of the box. But overall Fash-Bash was fun. The DIA's Founders Junior Council really brought the aspect of fun to this years Fash-Bash. In addition to the wonderful food and drinks, there were individual stations where you could make a leather key fob that is currently very hot and popular.
I always tell people who have never attended the event that there are two shows taking place. The fashion show on the runway and the fashion show that takes place before and after the runway event. I love seeing what people are wearing. Yes, the traditional gowns, and sparkle and such. But also very creative and wonderful fashions as well. As the saying goes, "Fashion is art, you are the canvas."

Ken Downing, Fashion Director for Neiman Marcus designs and styles the show each year for Fash-Bash. This year I got to meet him and speak with him about what goes into pulling together a show of this magnitude.
What was being shown on the runway for the season; Metallic's, yes metallic's are still very hot for all seasons. Also lots of reds and burgandy were shown as well as brocade creations. What I enjoyed seeing was the models with tiara's on with their fashions. I am all set I have a daytime and evening tiara to wear at a moment's notice.
