SparkleLux trunk show at Just Modern!
SparkleLux had a trunk show at Just Modern in Uptown Palm Springs on December 5!
I not only showcased never before seen women's designs and color ways, but I also debuted the long-awaited (and sold-out) men's line!
Bill Miller of Deja Vu Vintage Finery (another lovely uptown business) provided snazzy vintage wardrobe-- yes, we had live models! Local realtors Matthew Reader and Chris Bale, Megan Waldbillig of Trina Turk Palm Springs boutique and Billy Nova were my models. They were clad in assorted fashions from the 1950s and 1960s.
Over The Rainbow Cupcakes of Palm Springs provided guests with the most phenomenal French macaróns-- rose raspberry and coconut chocolate.
Enough chit-chat-- take in some pics!
