Last Thursday, September 26, the Carytown Merchant Association presented Carytown Fashion Feeds The Byrd. The event, held in Carytown, one of the sweet spots of Richmond, was a fashion show meant to celebrate the glamorous history of the Byrd Theatre Foundation. Established in 1928, the Byrd Theatre is one of those rare gems of historic Richmond that symbolizes the enchanting culture of the city. Fashion Feeds The Byrd was a Great Gatsby, ‘20s-themed evening to further honor the movie palace. Carytown retailers that walked the runway included Bygones Vintage Clothing, Champagne & Shoes, Pink, Lex’s of Carytown, Fab’rik, Alternatives Boutique, West Coast Kix, The Artisans Shops, Eurotrash and Glassboat.
Our hosts for the lovely evening were Raul Cantu, Director of the Fashion Feeds the Byrd, and co-host Shannon Siriano Greenwood. Performer and Red Carpet Host Michelle Livigne wore a dazzling floor length blue gown:

The evening was a celebration of creativity for a good cause, to ensure the gems of this city continue to glow as brightly as our history. As guests filed out of the theatre into the night decked out in their ‘20s garb, The Byrd Theatre shone and symbolized the core culture of Richmond–a diamond in the rough.
