Dressed To Kilt Charity Fashion Show
Darlings, it was the 9th Annual “Dressed To Kilt” charity fashion show at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and everyone wore kilts! Except for those people who didn’t seem to know what a kilt is! But first, let’s set the scene.
“The 2011 Theme of this next show draws its inspiration from the world of country music, particularly its roots and origins. Country music began with the ballads, songs and instruments from the Scots and the Scots-Irish. For much of the 18th and 19th centuries the Scottish immigrants came to the Applachian mountains of North America and they brought with them their music and their instruments. These people did not have an easy life and their music gave them an outlet to express their hardships. This music was preserved primarily in the southern USA, from Tennessee to Texas. “
“Therefore funds from this year’s event are being raised for the Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org), the Paralyzed Veterans of America (www.pva.org) and the Erskine Hospital in Scotland (www.erskine.org.uk). Indeed, three highly decorated wounded warriors will be joining us on the runway.”
Lovely. And to celebrate, there were entire new GENRES of kilt unveiled for the very first time by an array of celebrities and models! BEHOLD, minions:
