POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 Page 9 N bg JIngela Cornacchio Rooftop Fashion at the Revere Hotel last Wednesday, pictured are Maggie Inc. models and designer Heather Blond (middle). (Photo courtesy of Angela Cornacchio) Socially Scene Reviewed .... This past Wednesday I attended the fina!e of the month long Resort Runway at the Revere Hotel rooftop fashion shows that were all hosted by Christina K. Pierce boutique fashion agency. Themes for the events were cabana wear and the roof top pool decor with all white lounge chairs and cabanas were a perfect venue. The featured stylist was Heather Blond and these specific pieces were debuted at Miami fashion week. The models strutting the catwalk were none other than Maggie Inc. The view and service was great and the layout seemed almost built to host fashion shows and summertime festivities. Al- though the cabana wear is soon to find its way into the back of our closets doesn't mean the shows are at a close.
