Festive Couture Floral and the Variety Fashion Show

Festive Couture Floral and the Variety Fashion Show The Variety Fashion Show event was once again a huge success.

Guests experienced a New York style runway show featuring St. John's Pre Fall 2014 Collection. Albino Riganello, St. John Vice President Design attended. St. John designed three custom dresses for Variety Kids; Mallory, Jenna & Tori, plus a custom designed vest for Variety Kid, Zachary! FOX 2's Sandy Miller was the emcee for this exciting runway show.

St. John is an American luxury that was founded in 1962 on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress. Over the years, the brand has evolved, but the basis for the collection remains the same today as it did from the very start - updated classics, timeless and elegant clothing that appeals to women all over the world.

Below are a few back stage and behind the scenes images from the event.
