Oh my goodness I had fun at Allure: An Elegant Evening of Music and Fashion at Slide in San Francisco this past Thursday. I was joined by a great group of people and we totally lived it up, let me tell ya.

There’s something so nice about walking into an event, giving the bouncer my name, then being escorted to a private table where a personal cocktail waitress is waiting. Then the vodka came. Parr-tay!!

But enough about me. For now.

With one-of-a-kind pieces by Anya Zuyeva and wearable art by Semiha Durak, the first solo-produced fashion show by Shaun McClendon was a great success!

Allure: An Elegant Evening Of Music And Fashion – Meet The Designers

Anya’s designs are feminine and funky, and she obviously takes great care in planning out every detail of each piece. Complementing each ensemble, were Semiha Durak’s Guzel Jewelry designs, each one delicately bold in its own way.

I was fortunate enough to go backstage before the show to meet the designers and models; it was like nothing I had ever experienced. In one single narrow hallway were models sitting one in front of the other, with makeup artists and hair stylists turning them into works of art. Everything was so chaotic, yet quite calm and organized at the same time – like organized chaos with people instead of papers.
