ReCap: Tea Sandwiches, Boutique Shopping and a Passport to Fashion You’ll Want To See – The Career Wardrobe Tea Party

The Career Wardrobe held it’s annual tea and fashion show at the Bellevue last week. It’s a wonderful new tradition that I photograph every year. Who doesn’t love tea sandwiches, and a lunch time fashion show. Best of all it’s all for a good cause, to empower women entering the workforce. The Career Wardrobe helps women feel confident
when entering the workforce and takes the worry away about fitting in with
their counterparts who might not have had the stumbling blocks they have.

 6ABC’s Nydia Han was fashion
show emcee where over 200 women and their daughters attended, with a smattering
of men joining in the fun.  The event
included a fashion show, lunch with tea sandwiches, and this year they had boutique shopping of
all of the fashions that hit the runway; a portion of the sales benefited
Career Wardrobe.

  6ABC’s Nydia Han was fashion
show emcee – It’s always great to check out the Career Wardrobe fashion show as they provide the guests with a “passport” to what everyone was wearing. After the show guests could go upstairs to the “pop-up boutique” and purchase what they saw on the runway or one of the other outfits sold at the boutique, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Career Wardrobe.
