Earlier this month we were kindly invited to attend the Edo Popken Media Dinner at the Edo Popken of Switzerland boutique. With a personal appearance by Swiss Designer Edo Popken himself, we were excited to not only meet him, but see all his new collections.

Dinner was catered by Doug Boster Catering and it consisted of a three course meal and desert to die for! The entire set up and placement of decorations on the table were set exquisitely. Best of all, JT and I were seated right across from Edo! It was a delight hearing him talk about his vision, passion and the love he had for the Design District of Dallas.
Edo featured some of his most loved pieces & one of our favorites, the TUX EDO.
Our most loved part of the event consisted of the media discussion. There were a number of guest from all types of local media such as Modern Luxury Magazine, Trunk Club, bloggers His-And-Her.Com, Small 4 Style, Where Wear In the City, media writers Leah Frazier of DFW Style Daily along with many more. It was inspiring to hear everyone’s visions, feedback and their thoughts behind the Design District and Edo Popken himself. Overall, the discussion ended up being extremely inspiring and intriguing.
We want to personally thank Edo Popken, the staff of Edo Popken and Courtney Edwards of francisco+co for having us! It was an extremely amazing experience and we would encourage anyone to come visit their store anytime!
Your Plus One,
Jt and Amy
In benefit of Dress for Success, we attended the Light the Runway event at the home of Faye Briggs this past May. Hosted by Janet Fresquez, this was the organizations third-annual fashion fundraiser. The event featured a father-daughter fashion show produced by Harriet Kelly Gibbs, live entertainment, food by Own Network Star - Marita Jara, beverages and much more!
Dress For Success is an organization that helps in promoting “economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” We would highly encourage anyone to visit their website about opportunities to volunteer or donate.
