Description: The 5th Annual Passion for Fashion raised awareness and funds for the Alexander and Gabrielle Mansour Memorial Fund on Friday, December 20, 2013 at Shenandoah Country Club in West Bloomfield. This is a permanently endowed fund supporting enrichment programs in the West Bloomfield School District.

Presented by BELFOR Property Restoration, Charity Motors and Groupon, the show featured 10 local salons and 10 clothing boutiques from the metro Detroit area. “It was a pleasure to be featured in the show, and we were impressed with being a sponsor. We have traveled through Europe at fashion events over the years and thought this was very well executed,” said Mindy Krigel of Bricker Tunis Furs in West Bloomfield.

More than 50 models participated in a runway show hosted by Slim, from the “Mojo in the Morning” radio as well as Elizabeth Ivezaj, Miss Michigan USA 2014. Guests enjoyed beverages from Zim’s Vodka, Blue Nectar Tequila, Frankenmuth Brewery and Pepsico. Amar Senawi won a diamond necklace, donated by Darakjian Jewelers of Birmingham.

Several local businesses donated items to the silent auction and Papa Romano’s donated food for a late night snack. Guests also enjoyed an assortment of desserts by Trifles in Commerce.
