EVENT: 2018 Eco Chic Fashion Show | Hosted by Cincy Chic, Cincinnati, Ohio


The 2018 Eco Chic Fashion Show in Cincinnati recently featured Buri and Beach’s 2018 Spring/Summer collection of straw bags.  Our new designs consist of interesting textures, shapes and patterns. Vibrant hues in plaids, stripes, checks and geometric decor were added to the collection.  In addition, we also spruced up some of our natural bags with a palm leaf icon and tassel adornments.  Our current ensemble of sustainable bags are full of personality and are ready to be toted on any occasion.  Since the warmer weather has finally arrived, it is time to add some excitement to our wardrobe with fun pieces.  There is something for every style, so check out our new line to freshen up your look. 


The show was hosted by Cincy Chic, an online publication for Cincinnati, which was founded by editor-in-chief and publisher,  Amy Scalia.  The mother of two and soon to be three, showed up glowing, just nine days before her due date.  Her mission was to show women that they could be fashionable, while being kind to the environment.  Stephanie Simon, Vice President of Operations and Amy’s right-hand woman, coordinated the event seamlessly.  Pulling together all the details, she kept the affair organized and running smoothly.  The team’s stylist, Jackie Neville,  harmonized the models’ looks with our bags.  Jackie, owner of Your Stylist, LLC, handpicked spring and summer outfits from Dillard’s to go with the resort and coastal theme of our new collection.  It was incredible to watch these three amazing women create such a wonderful extravaganza, while celebrating Mother Earth in style.

The March 23rd event benefited Dress for Success Cincinnati.  It was held in the fabulous showroom of Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The two-story building exuded opulence with a beautiful winding staircase, which served as the models’ runway. The event boasted a great turnout with many beautiful women and men attending.  We enjoyed meeting many attendees and learning of their different occupations, backgrounds, and philanthropic endeavors. 

Spirits were high, as the crowd mingled, sipped and shopped for the first two hours before the show; and the music playlist by DJ Lisa Blayde kept the attendees upbeat.  The models of Heyman Talent Agency, were primped to perfection by Paul Mitchell The School Cincinnati. They all did a wonderful job strutting up and down the stairs gracefully in their heels.  Some donned flower crowns, while others carried fresh flowers, all supplied by The Flower Lady.  We were amazed at Chris Birkmeyer of Twin Spire Photography, who was capturing moments in a discreet manner.  In conclusion, The Eco Chic Fashion Show was a great success and a fun time was had by all.
