Ribbons on the Runway

by Jenna GreenBerg

Sunday March 25th 2012 marked the 8th anniversary of Ribbons on the Runway. Ribbons on the Runway is an annual charity fashion show and silent auction event that Emerson’s Alpha Epsilon Phi chapter holds every year to support Sharsheret, an organization that supports Jewish women and their families who are struggling with breast cancer. It is the organization’s biggest fundraiser. This year the show was a huge success. The committee was working on the event for months in advance in order to ensure that it was the best show to date. This year’s show featured major designers and boutiques such as Betsey Johnson, LF Boston, and Jack Wills, as well some local companies like Enamour, Kokoon, and Lipstick Boutique. All the hair and makeup was generously provided by Roffi Salon, ensuring that all the models looked beautiful. The models themselves were all Emerson students, and the event was completely run by their Emerson peers and Sisters of Alpha Epsilon Phi. The show went flawlessly starting with the edgy clothes of LF and finishing with a preppy spring line from Jack Wills. Enamour showed a modern, black, white, and red cohesive line while Kokoon leaned towards a bright beachy line. Lipstick featured short and fun spring dresses, and Betsey Johnson stole the show with 15 bright, young, and girly looks.

Overall the show was impressive. Below are some pictures from the event.
