Fashion reigned supreme at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden for the second annual Splendor in the Garden fashion show and luncheon. In partnership with Neiman Marcus Coral Gables, the event attracted more than 300 guests, and the proceeds benefitted Fairchild’s programs in conservation, science, children’s education and research. The stylish and chic guests enjoyed a reception sponsored by Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte on the mosaic terrace outside the Visitors Center. The festivities moved to the beautiful Lakeside Marquee splashed with orange floors and flower arrangements. Each chair had a special gift bag, and guests could change from their heels into the colorful flip flops they were provided to tour the DiMare Science Village after the luncheon. CBS 4 news anchor Shannon Hori emceed, welcoming everyone to the event. Fashion industry icon Ken Downing, senior vice president and fashion director for Neiman Marcus, presented “The Best of Spring 2013” fashion show with models strutting the runway in the hottest trends of the season – orange, cobalt blue, lace, and warm-weather leather. Following the show the 2013 Fairchild Philanthropy Honorees were introduced: Maria Alonso, Anne Baddour, Bunny Bastian, Paula Brockway, Terry Buoniconti, Martha Clinton and Jan Risi Field. The event was co-chaired by Swanee DiMare and Frances Sevilla-Sacasa.
