Greenwich and K.P. Strut The Catwalk Once Again!
Through strong client relationships, K.P. Events Group has established certain signature events that we work on throughout the year, for the past four years, one of our favorite projects is the annual Fashion on the Avenue event in Greenwich, CT. This past September 5th, was no different in the level of enjoyment than years gone by.
Each year, the usually bustling Greenwich Avenue is partially closed off to traffic and transformed into a temporary catwalk as local businesses flaunt their wares modeled by residents in a fun display of civic pride, commercial camaraderie and cultural awareness. Several couture shops are featured as well as special exhibitions by high-end car and boat dealerships. Also featured were dancers form Equinox Fitness Center and Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom.
The four-year old event gathered a vast crowd of fashion aficionados, on-lookers and town officials, such as First Selectman Peter Tesei who spoke to the enthusiastic crowd and proclaimed the evening to be an officially recognized town event. Many in the crowd that lined both sides of the main street were there to support the models, as the majority were amateur models gracing the red carpet and having a fun evening including former Miss Connecticut Kaitlyn Tarpey.
Hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue and primarily sponsored by Casablanca Polo, the event was a huge success. Several other sponsors include Equinox Fitness Center, Serendipity Magazine, First Bank of Greenwich and The Greenwich Chamber of Commerce. Geri Corrigan, Director of Marketing for Saks Fifth Avenue and chair of Fashion on the Avenue was beaming with pride. In a current news item he had said, “It continues to grow and has become a very beloved community event.”
A beloved event indeed, especially for K.P. Events Group as we strutted our own wares while supplying the event with all audio aspects from podium microphone to musical selections all thru our JBL MRX and VRX speaker systems.
Models, organizers and audience alike enjoyed the warm, fun evening. The event showcased the best of Greenwich, active wear, glamour and whimsical planning. K.P. Events Group is proud of participating in this gathering for every year of its existence and looks forward to shining our spotlight on this event again next year.
