A beautiful highrise. A beautiful group of party-goers. A beautiful showing of fashion designer Abi Ferrin’s latest designs. Last Thursday night was just beautiful. The Superbowl Kickoff party was hosted at the Azure in Uptown, with some of the members of the NFL Players’ Wives Association, “Off the Field, ” modeling Abi Ferrin’s latest and greatest. With the nicest PR queen in town, Sabra Girard, at the helm and hor dourves by the talented Lisa Garza, this event not only showcased great local fashion but also benefitted St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Though all the looks by Ferrin were winners, it was the silky new designs that were inspired by her trip to St. Tropez that really brought the “wow factor”.
This night was such a fun start to the upcoming Superbowl Festivites, which include January 27: 10th Annual OTF Players’ Wives Awards Banquet and Fashion Show VIP and Media Reception, featuring new Abi Ferrin fashions worn by NFL Players’ Wives-Pat Smith, Romonda Jordan and Sherice Brown. Pat Smith will also unveil and model the 6.32 carat brown-pink diamond donated to the February 4th OTF Fashion Show auction. (Donated by Worldwide Diamond Ventures and exclusively set by Olschwanger Designs.) This will be from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Stanley Korshak.
Additionally, February 3rd brings an Abi Ferrin Brand Launch Party at Nordstrom, which is a free event. Light refreshments will be served from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Savvy at Nordstrom NorthPark Center. Guests may RSVP to the Nordstrom Launch Party at 214.231.3900 ext 1360.
And for the creme de la creme: two days before Super Bowl XLV explodes at Cowboys Stadium, Off The Field, the NFL Players’ Wives Association — will hold its 10th Annual Awards Banquet and Fashion Show benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Abi Ferrin will impress once again as the 2011 featured designer and the event will be co-hosted by Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith’s wife, Pat Smith, and Amy Vanderoef.
