Lumina Station succeeded in pulling off a series of events for their first all-inclusive Week of WOW, set in motion by visionaries Richard and Jane Marquard of Paysage a few years back. A kick-off cocktail party benefitting JDRF and The Carousel Center, then a design luncheon, Top Chef cooking class, trunkshows, giveaways and more culminated with the finale “She Wore Blue Velvet” fashion show under the tents last Friday night on 11.11.11. Ushering in the Age of Aquarius, 21 models channeled Blue Velvet’s Dorothy, Sandy, Jeffrey and Frank wearing looks I styled from Island Passage, Ziabird, Monkee’s, Beanie + Cecil, Gentlemen’s Corner and Tickled Pink (he & me, Adore Designs, Style Girl Collection). Blush  gave the Sandys’ soft, feminine waves and sweet makeup while Harbour Club took the Dorothys’ to the darker side with “bitch hair” and smoky blue-tinged eyes.


Event emcee Foz of Z107.5 got the party started with a viewing of Blueberry Fusion’s “Motion Portrait,” their mischievous take on the photo booth at the Kick-Off Party. There’s something fascinating (and funny) watching people get their pose on! Click the image below to watch the video.



Another highlight of the night was the Makeover Reveals featuring Z107.5’s Suzanne Jalot, popular Wilmington lawyer Jim Zisa and Lumina News writer Trish Matson. etc Media captured each transformation to show preparations for their big runway reveal!
