In honor of Women’s History Month and Los Angeles Fashion Week, City National Bank is presenting “Dreams Do Come True,” a fashion show featuring GLAUDI by Johana Hernandez collection of evening and bridal gowns, men’s tuxedos as well as women’s power suits. The event takes place March 25 from 3-7 p.m. at Beverly Canon Gardens, located at 241 N. Canon Drive in Beverly Hills.
“I am thrilled to showcase my latest collection in this beautiful outdoor setting in the capital of luxury, Beverly Hills,” said Hernandez. “I named the show “Dreams Do Come True,” because I design for all the special moments in our lives, our wedding day, quinceañera and red carpet moments. But also, to honor the amazing women in our Role Models Panel who inspire all of us to make our dreams come true.”
The Role Models Panel will feature successful women sharing their personal stories while wearing Power Suits by GLAUDI. Panelists include Mayor Lili Bosse and Giselle Fernandez, host of the Emmy-award winning “LA Stories” and anchor of “Your Morning News” on L.A.’s Spectrum 1.
The fashion show will culminate with Hernandez walking down the runway, modeling one of her bridal creations, along with her fiancé John Daniel Hutton, in celebration of their upcoming nuptials.
Proceeds from the show will go to benefit EmpowerHer Institute, a non-profit that empowers girls and young women in marginalized communities by giving them the skills necessary through education, training, and mentorship to become confident, college, and career-ready.
GLAUDI is also launching its first collection of sustainable earrings made from excess GLAUDI dress fabric by women in El Salvador from vulnerable communities. With her earrings collection, GLAUDI provides job opportunities for women from vulnerable communities that allow them to improve the quality of their lives and that of their children and families.
