Spring Fashion Time in Hurricane

Spring is a time of new growth, as well as new fashions, with many people taking advantage of the changing weather to update their wardrobe with new clothing. The latest spring fashions from local boutiques were showcased during Blooms and Brunch, a ladies’ fashion and beauty soiree, which was held on Saturday, March 20, at Social Event Space on Main Street, Hurricane. A wide variety of styles were modeled by women and children from the Hurricane and Teays Valley areas. Participating boutiques included Iris and Indie, Oodles, Peyton and Peppy, Finding Foxtale, and Fabric Fiend.

Continuing with the garden party theme, guests were encouraged to dress up in spring attire. Prior to the fashion show, guests enjoyed a delicious brunch featuring egg frittatas, sausage, and a fruit parfait station, as well as pastries from Sweet Mamas Bakery. Several local vendors were set up, offering shopping opportunities.

Blooms and Brunch was a fundraiser for Branches Domestic Violence Center, with a portion of each ticket going to purchase much-needed supplies.

“As a small business owner, I like to support other small business owners,” said Ashely Deal, the owner of Social Event Space.

Deal thought that Blooms and Brunch would be a good opportunity for people to shop local, and she wanted to bring a variety of different clothing options for a variety of ages and personal tastes. Since the event was supporting a woman’s charity, she wanted to represent women-owned businesses from the local community.

Social Event Space is located in the old George’s Dry Cleaning building on Main Street. The facility opened last October, and people can rent out the space for various functions, such as meetings, weddings, and parties. In addition to offering a facility that can be rented for events, Social Event Space also puts on one event of their own each month.
