First Impressions V - a Smashing Success!

On November 13, 2007, over 80 fashionistas, reporters, designers, fashion critics and models from a several agencies gathered in the newly built EFA Runway to witness First Impressions V. A veritable who’s who in the fashion world, the standing room only crowd cheered as they witnessed the models present collections from Myralda Minnelli and Leezu Baxter.

The first collection shown was Myralda Minelli’s. Beginning with her creative swim wear, through her selection of sports wear and on through her evening wear, her collection was infused with a delightful take on the ’80s retro look that has been so big on the runways this year. Fascinating fabric textures from the cozy knits to her use of metallics got rave responses from the audience.

The second collection was Leezu Baxter’s. Her collection of versatile layered pieces allows for multiple looks that can go from shopping to nightclub and dancing by changing a few simple pieces. Leezu has reinvented the skirt this season, with a fresh, exciting approach.

After over two hours of fashion, guests, models, designers, and Ewing staff continued the party in the stylish Iconica lounge where we danced the night away in celebration of the successful show.
