Staying on Top: Allure Magazine's D.C. Spa Pick Kavenchy 1st Annual Runway Show

Staying on Top:  Allure Magazine's D.C. Spa Pick Kavenchy 1st Annual Runway Show

Allure magazine's top DC salon, Kavenchy, hosted it's first Annual Spring Look Runway Show Monday night.   Guests began arriving at 7PM for the invitation only event sponsored by Phytos and Dermalogica.   The theme for the show was spring and no detail was spared to transport guests from the outside cold into a spring garden.  The "red carpet" was thrown out and replaced instead with green plant wire meshing like the kind you would find at the garden store. The runway was lined with gerber daisies, some orchids and bamboo. The night consisted of two runway shows, one to showcase cut and color and the other featured styling.  Kavenchy tapped PEKvida a newly formed boutique public relations firm, founded by PR veterans Pergrin, Elly Sharriat and Khaleelah Po Rome to create his signature event.
