Event Details

 1st Annual Rainbow

Shoe /Tie Affair
 
what is it you ask?

 
It's Grammy's meets Fashion Week
 
It's Maxi dresses with color and flare
It's Mini's with sexiness and sass
It's Leathers with luscious style

It's Bois and Boys in skinny leg suits

and colorful ties

 
but more importantly - it's about the accessories
 It's about the handbags, ties, hats, jewlery, etc...

It's 4 inch Pumps and Stillettoes meets

Stacy Adams and snake skin/ crocodile boots

 
A Red Carpet entrance let's you and your partner or by yourself strut in to the flash of  paparazzi
