Couture for a Cause 2013 – Pre-show Photos

It was my pleasure to again be a part of the Couture for a Cause family for 2013.

Couture for a Cause is a charity fashion show and is a part of Activate Good.  If you’ve not heard of Activate Good, I’d encourage you to check them out;  Activate Good is a charity organization that partners with other charities and volunteers and matches needs with skills.  It’s a great way to find out what charities need assistance and you can use your skills to help others.  I hope you’ll take the time to donate in some way and give back.

I was unable to attend the fashion show, but I did a photoshoot for some of the designers and models two weeks ago.  These photos had to be kept under wraps until the show, so I proud to unveil them to you now.

My photoshoot was for the following Designers / Models / Non Profits this year:

Couture for a Cause on WRAL

The meta-charity organization Activate Good is hosting the 3rd Annual Couture for a Cause on October 21st.  I shot photos for this fashion show last year, and the photos were displayed on WRAL’s noon news today (Direct Link to the video) when Amber Smith and Karen Huskins were interviewed about the fashion show.  I’m extremely excited that I’m a sponsor of this year’s Couture for a Cause. If you’re free on Friday, 10/21, I highly suggest you come with me to this event, it will be something extraordinary to witness.  We are doing a pre-show fashion show this Saturday, but I don’t think I’ll be allowed to post pics of the event until the day of the show.  Stay tuned!
