Cyber Couture — The 22nd annual Vista Hill Fashion Show, presented by the Vista Hill Foundation and Virginia Napierskie, took place on April 18. Held at the Marriott Marquis & Marina, the event featured Carol LeBeau, former news anchor of KGTV Channel 10, as mistress of ceremonies. LeBeau talked about her personal experience with mental health and her incredible story offers hope for others in similar situations.
The fashion show, coordinated by Gretchen Bergman of Gretchen Productions, was themed “Cyber Couture” and featured new-age hair and makeup by Bellus Academy. The runway offered futuristic styles, black-light sets, cellophane designs and plenty of sequins and rhinestones.
Proceeds from the event benefit Vista Hill Foundation, providing help for mental health and social services. For more information, visit www.vistahill.org.
