Empty (for now) Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (Lincoln Center-NYC)




 A pre- event in a way …Fatigues to Fabulous (F2F)-a non-profit- hosted a full house to a runway event of---of course, beautiful black dresses (little-ish to long)…that honored women military personnel who have served our country-and now as veterans…are transitioning (or have) to civilian life.

models…and ROLE MODELS too!

















The  runway show- featuring models who are role models for us all- began after opening remarks-introducing attendees to F2F "...a national campaign designed to support those women serving in our nation's military, and the unique issues faced by women veterans…"



























 FYI:" Salute The Runway" campaign-launched in June 2014-produces fashion show events on military installations in Texas and Washington…highlighting the achievements of local service women and celebrating their achievements.

Kudos to the designers who provided the black dresses.
