Local designer Aidah Fontenot celebrated her 3rd anniversary in fashion on Saturday, May 7 in Hillyer Art Space. The place was packed with no single standing spot left, and anxiously awaiting spectators could fairly enjoy a collection of unique dresses and gowns, jumpers and even business suites! Although the fabrics and silhouettes were so variable – from silky and flowy to businessy and well-fitted, you could always recognize “the_aidahs” by signature monogram. The show was hosted by famous style-setter Paul Wharton, who also helped to raise $1,000 in less than 10 minutes for Girls, Inc. of WDCMA by selling brunch table to share with him and his friend Omarosa. Best tunes in town were delivered by noone else but Neekola and Rex Riot.
