The Pavillion at the Seminole Coconut Creek was packed for this year’s SHUZZ Art Fashion Show on March 15. Utilizing double runways, the models strutted down the runway showcasing for the first time the fashions of Patricia Gomez-Gracia, a designer whose looks have been seen on celebrities like Carrie Underwood, Katie Holmes and Kim Kardashian. There was also an elaborate dance performance in between the fashions, as well as a live auction. Ryan Beckett, from The Bachlorette’s and Bachelor in Paradise, and ESPN’s Josh Cohen served as emcees.

The pre-show in a nearby room featured fancy drinks and hors d’ oeuvres, as well as a silent auction and models in cages and on tables, plus art displayed on the walls. Kendra Scott Jewelers (which has a store in Mizner Park in Boca Raton) sold “grab boxes”… you could pick your own box and what was inside was a surprise, valued at a lot more than the initial investment. There was a red carpet for photo opps with

Eye on South Florida, and other media, conducting interviews and taking pictures. Some pageant queens from International World Global were among

ESPN’s Josh Cohen, The Observer’s Rachel Galvin and ‘the Bachelor’ Ryan Beckett.

those who posed on the carpet, as well as local actors, PR moguls, philanthropists, business owners, fashionistas and other movers and shakers. The after party, in the same room, included desserts like donuts, mousse and more. It was quite the soiree.

But, it was the meaning behind the event that was most spectacular. SHUZZ is a group, founded by Rita Lombardo, which provides new shoes to children in poverty-stricken areas around the world. In addition, they donated water, food and more to victims of Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria. These donations were possible through partnerships with Grieco Automotive Group, Tito’s, Amazon and MLB.
