Amazing. Even the honorable Mr. Morris could not find another word to describe the artistry and the expertise that he and his team have been able to achieve over the decade. His metallic gold Jeremy Scott Adidas wings sneakers graced the runway as he effortlessly exuded an energy that filled the ballroom. This was an event that not only hailed the past 10 years of Matthew Morris, but also to new beginnings.
The eager guests that attended were treated to an array of eye candy that foreshadowed the occasion and the phenomenal spectacles they would witness. As the night progressed and with everyone taking full advantage of the open bar, courtesy of those that donated, it was time for the main show.
The avant-garde of Colorado gathered into their seats surrounding the X shaped runway that teased them as L’Erin and Marvin, parterns along side Matthew Morris, spoke and were reminiscent of days past that were part of the fundamental building blocks that shaped what the Matthew Morris Salon has become.
However, it would not be a Matthew Morris event without a just cause. This year, the wonderful team decided to help defeat Breast Cancer and to help promote early detection awareness among women. The brave Erin Monroe spoke about her experience as a Breast Cancer survivor and how important it is for women to realize how impactful Breast Cancer is. Money was graciously donated as spirits were uplifted as guests thought about the women in their lives that, someday, might be diagnosed.
Black, gold, chic, sexy and fierce: The Blonds. A New York household that has accumulated a dynamic cult following over the past 8 years. This was the first time the duo at The Blonds put their collection confidently into someone else’s hands. The Matthew Morris Vision and The Blonds is a match made in heaven and they did not disappoint. Grimey dubstep, trap, edm and rap music set the mood as the models strutted down the runway. As you would expect, it’s hard to put the collection into words.
Congratulations are due to the entire Matthew Morris team for a wonderful 10 years in Denver. We look forward to every minute of the years to come.
Next up for the Matthew Morris team! L’Erin was suprised by the gift of part ownership of the company and they are opening up a new salon in DTC!
