Fashion was out in full force night at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium's first Fashion for the Wild benefit event.
Influential fashionistas from across Pittsburgh were present, either displaying their designs at vendor booths, modeling or showing off their collections in a fashion show emceed by Sally Wiggin and David Conrad.
The aquarium where the event was held was filled with fashion eye candy. Here are some of the top trends spotted during the night:
Colorful prints: Collections by Lana Neumeyer, Tidal Cool Creations and Jazmin Jackson were peppered with eye-catching prints in bright colors. Ms. Jackson dabbled a lot in blacks and golds (references to Pittsburgh perhaps?), while Ms. Neumeyer's designs brought the flavor of her native country of Brazil with bold florals in warm hues.
Cozy chic: Kiya Tomlin's sweatshirt dresses prove comfort and chicness can combine. Super soft fabrics in a few colors and cuts allow ladies to find a look that suits their style.
A sprinkle of sparkle: The table of sparkly accessories from Sabika's spring/summer line attracted a lot of attention as women gathered around to try on the Swarovski pieces in rich shades of blue, pale pink and silver.
Statement scarves: Never mind those who say scarves are just for winter. Wraps in seasonal shades or floral prints and stripes, like those from Carabella boutique in Oakmont, are a simple way to switch up a look.
Bold cuffs: Arm cuffs etched with creative designs were among the offerings from luxe handbag and jewelry designer Sandra Cadavid.
