Fluid: Manitou Fashion Show
Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 at City Hall in Manitou Springs, Colorado
Fluid was a chic and contemporary fashion show presented by William Maestas Productions in collaboration with The Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts and SunWater Spa, that blended fashions from 12 local boutiques or designers with hair designs and make up artistry from local stylists. A cocktail reception, a substantial silent auction featuring products from local restaurants, boutiques, artists and more, beats by local DJ Eddy Sound, Emcee Maile Gray and food and drinks provided by Good Karma Café of Manitou Springs.
The goal of Fluid was to raise funds for the Mineral Springs Foundation of Manitou Springs. Since its establishment in 1987, the Mineral Springs Foundation has been able to restore and develop eight mineral springs with help from the City of Manitou Springs and private landowners. In addition to restoring the springs, the foundation has taken legal action to ensure that the springs remain protected. These springs are not only unique resources, but they are historic landmarks that date back to 1820 when the first settlers came to the area for the waters healing properties. This historic background makes the region a major tourist attraction providing economic growth for the area.
