It’s Christmas in April with Life-Changing Fashions
ahr.es.ihm™ Showcases One-of-a-Kind Fall/Holiday Fashions Exclusively at Charity Fashion Show and Discarded to Divine
SAN FRANCISCO, California – March 2, 2011 — For many years, ahr.es.ihm™ has worked with charitable organizations in creating an atmosphere of health and wellness and positive lifestyle change. Since mid-year 2010, ahr.es.ihm™ has been anxious to participate in two charitable fashion shows for 2011, the Charity Fashion Show and Discarded to Divine.
Both, Charity Fashion Show and Discarded to Divine, were created to bridge the cutting-edge and trendsetting, fashion industry with the powerful impact of non-profit organizations.
"As a brand that puts a woman’s grace and elegance first, I wanted to create a desirable, fun, and wearable collection that offers something for a variety of tastes," the designer (R. Shay Miles), who began her eponymous acronym label in 2009, told SF Indie Fashion. “This is our first event for the Charity Fashion Show and Discarded to Divine, and we hope to make a difference with unique designs that embodies the message and reflects the beauty of each charitable organization.”
Profoundly inspired by grace, elegance, and empowering those who clearly need assistance, ahr.es.ihm™ decided to exclusively launch its Fall/Holiday 2011 Collection at the Charity Fashion Show (http://charityfashionshow.org) on April 2 at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. This collection offers ahr.es.ihm’s signature asymmetrical designs with an edgy attitude. The collection will be sold primarily at True Essence Boutique in Piedmont, CA beginning September 10.
Simultaneously, while finalizing the collection, Miles kept Discarded to Divine as a design secret for months. When she found a shower curtain and gold drapes from the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s discard bin, she envisioned an eco-friendly holiday evening gown. Five designs were illustrated, but only one will be unveiled and auctioned at Discarded to Divine (http://discardedtodivine.org/) on April 28 at The Hall at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco.
"ahr.es.ihm is thrilled to participate in fun and innovative events like the Charity Fashion Show and Discarded to Divine," said Rochelle D. Bridgeman, COO. "We are thrilled to champion charitable concepts like these, which helps to promote cultural diversity, community involvement, and homeless outreach."
While no images of the Fall/Holiday Collection or recycled design have been released, design highlights include festive gold tones, silk, faux fur, feathers, and fluid grandeur.
Besides being available at True Essence Boutique, the collection will be offered later in the year in other California locations like San Francisco, Napa, and Los Altos, visit http://ahresihm.com, click on ‘shop’.
