Lights, cameras and Aidah’s Spring and Fall Collections made for quite the anniversary show Wednesday night. Models in Aidah’s finest signature pieces – all with that trademark hand painted design – did the local designer proud as they showcased her work over the past year.

Yours truly was proud to serve as emcee for the evening.
Each piece is handstiched and hand painted, and Aidah takes pride in the fact that they are not mass manufactured, but locally designed and crafted. Her designs are created for the confident, the sexy, the unique, and the curvy woman…and now man! Wednesday night’s show featured the first ever men’s collection, complete with pants, tees, and turtlenecks.
Not only did guests enjoy seeing the fashions on the mini-catwalk, but the evening served as a “trunk show” of sorts. Taking note of their favorite pieces from the runway, patrons could purchase gift cards that would be honored for twice their value (for one night only)!
The night also featured a rather competitive silent auction! Someone finally outbid me on that dinner for two and hotel package… but I’m glad we bid it up, because 100% of the proceeds went directly to benefit Interstages.
