This past October I had the distinct privilege to shoot an event for Mariani’s Boutique. For the past three years Marinai’s Boutique, a local women’s clothing and accessory shop, has sponsored Fashion For A Cure, a fashion fundraising event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

There was an interactive panel with three experts in women’s health and nutrition and they covered topics about medicine, nutrition, and skincare, all related to breast cancer.

After the panel of women spoke, a 3 part fashion show took place. This was a fun past of the night to photograph. All of the models wore clothing that can be found at Mariani’s Boutique and over half of the models themselves were breast cancer survivors! Some of the women told their story of how they discovered the cancer, their road to recovery and their amazing lives today. They were such an inspiration to everyone who was at the fundraiser.

All proceeds went to the St. Francis Breast Cancer Foundation of Greenville.

I thoroughly enjoyed shooting the event and look forward to next year’s event! Be sure to check out Marinai’s website and stop in their store to do some shopping and tell Mary Ann I sent you.
