On Thursday, August 23, Early Mountain celebrated in high style with special guests Urban Chic Boutique showcasing the best styles for fall 2012.
The evening began with guests mingling and shopping the latest trends from designer Rochelle Beherns, creator of The Shirt, browsing the colorful necklaces from Hyla DeWitt and chatting with stylist and owner of Spendalla Wardrobe Styling Wendy Pilch.
Urban Chic is known as a mainstay of the DC-area fashion community, hosting trunk shows, supporting community organizations, and producing a full-scale fashion show/charity benefit each fall - it was a natural partnership for Early Mountain Vineyards.
Our Washington, DC fashion and lifestyle bloggers joined us near the 6 o'clock hour after shuttling in from the nation's capital - including members of Capital Area Fashion and Beauty Bloggers (CAPFABB), Flavor Magazine columnist and Mix 107.3 radio host Brooke Ryan.
After everyone was served a glass of prosecco with wild hibiscus flower infused syrup, Jean Case warmly welcomed the guests and explained her passion for Early Mountain and its dedication to promote all Virginia wines, happily saying "We love Virginia, and we believe that our state's wine has the potential to compete with some of the best wine regions in the world."
Wendy then went on to talk about the fashion trends for the fall season. Forget neons and brights, metallics and leather will be THE trends to wear. And as far as rules, there are none! Mixing and matching patterns such as polka dots with stripes is all the latest and white can certainly be worn way past Labor Day. She specifically focused on The Shirt, commenting on its perfect fit and delicateness for the modern women.
Throughout the remainder of the evening our guests networked, enjoyed specialty foods from our in-house menu and toured our grounds taking in the remarkable views, including being witness to the sun setting over the Blue Ridge mountains.
