Darling! A Fashion Fundraiser was held Thursday, April 14th at the exquisite Palazzo Verdi in Greenwood Village, CO. Delicious dinner by Epicurean Catering was provided as well as a fashion show featuring local MOPS moms modeling the Evereve Spring line.
What an incredibly inspiring and beautiful event this was. We often think of fashion as the city woman, dashing down the street in stilettos but fashion is so much more than that! Fashion is for everybody including MOTHERS and this fashion show was all about celebrating motherhood, friendship and empowerment.
Before the fashion show began, we watched a heartwarming video about how MOPS has inspired and connected mothers, bringing tears to our eyes. Although neither one of us that attended are mothers (or fathers for that matter), you could feel the love of family and community throughout the room.
We listened to keynote speaker Danielle Stangler, founder of Neet Cheeks, about her journey following her dream and ending up in an interview on Shark Tank! Neat Cheeks are a flavored wipe for babies and toddlers (well… adults too! We each got one in our goody bag and I have been carrying them around with me using them all the time). It was so inspiring to listen to her journey of having an idea and putting it into action.
In between raffling off some wonderful gifts and delicious food and desert… the fashion show began! There is something so magical about hearing one’s story and then seeing them walk down the runway. It’s as though their soul was lit up, shining brightly. To be honest, I shed a few tears of joy watching these beautiful moms strut down the runway!

The fashions were beautiful, wearable, unique and fun. The feeling that was in the air was full of love, community, family, and friends. It was a spectacular event and I’m so happy that the Fashion Denver team could attend such a memorable event!
Thank you for having us MOPS!
