Did you know? Fashion Awards MD states its mission is to celebrate, highlight and recognize the talents of those who have made influences to the fashion industry in the state of Maryland and beyond.
On Sunday the 16th of March in 2014, Fashion Awards MD in Baltimore hosted the EMERGE Nominee awards presentation and fashion show celebration in Maryland. It was the biggest fashion show of this Spring at Lord Baltimore Hotel in downtown Baltimore. Who knew one establishment could hold so much fashion & fun in one building. EMERGE Nominee awards presentation and fashion show was a one stop shop for everything from fashion vendor expo, fashion awards presentations, VIP cocktail lounge, fabulous fashion show and red carpet photo opp. Talk about a fashion pick-me-up scene!
The celebration took place from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. serving pay as you go Jack Daniel’s Honey inspired cocktails. The general cost of admission was $25 which was standing-room only seating for the awards presentation and fashion show as well as access to fashion vendor exhibits. The VIP admission was $45 which included one complimentary Jack Daniel's Honey cocktail, front & 2nd row ceremony seating, access to an exclusive balcony cocktail reception and complimentary lite bites. The Jack Daniel’s Honey was flowing from every corner of the ballroom.
The event began at 4 p.m. with complimentary red carpet photo opportunities for all guests and fashion vendor consumer shopping. Beginning 6 p.m. there were fashion awards presented, followed by live entertainment and fashion show runway segments that repeated until 7:30 p.m. The coolest part of it all was the live acrobat performances and musical DJ backdrop. Oh, did I mention the VIP guests were given complimentary gourmet popcorn and miniature Jack Daniel's Honey keepsakes to go. Talk about a live glammed up crowded fashion affair!
