There was no sign of Fall in the air at this month’s Essa Trunk Show held at the always fabulous Ted Gibson & Hela Spa at the Collection at Chevy Chase, which benefitted the Many Hats Institute. Hosted by Micky Farivar, the intimate, but very lively fashion show featured flowy gowns by designer, Essa, in stunning colors like fuschia, turquoise, and purple. The beautiful Dubai-inspired designs were modelled by local bloggers and celebrities (With hair and make-up gorgeously done by the talented Ted Gibson salon staff) including host Micky Farivar, Nadine Namoff (wife of DC United player Brian Namoff), Makeda Saggau-Sackey of the Glamazon Diaries, Jessica Andrews aka GI Jess, and stars of the upcoming CW reality show, "Blonde Charity Mafia," Katherine Kennedy and Krista Johnson. Guests also browsed exotic jewelry by Faso and sampled champagne, wine, and delicious hors d'oeuvres by Peacock Cafe, where guests later continued to party the night away!
