We have been busy bees at Allie Ollie these past three weeks. Between Tucson Fashion Week and Santa Fe Fashion Week, there have been 3 runway shows, 4 trunk shows, 1 TV show, and at least twenty boutique visits. It has been an exciting time for us as we sold our line to a great set of stores in Albuquerque and are still following up with a variety of promising leads.
Here’s a little photo journey from our past two weeks. Enjoy!
We loved how the gold in our Night Sky print just shimmered on the runway.
Our Emerald Elegance looking very chic.
Allie’s final runway walk.
Finishing the evening with the show’s Executive Producer, Paula Taylor of Paula Taylor Productions. She really put on a fabulous show!
After several days on the road, we really became experts at packing the van! And now it’s off to Santa Fe Fashion Week!
Wednesday AM we were up early and at the set of New Mexico Style to introduce our designs and discuss the events for Santa Fe Fashion Week. Here is a great pic of our models backstage. Who knew we were among some of New Mexico’s modeling elite- including ReShea Kelly of the New Mexico CW and Sabra Steele!
Here we are on the set with NM Style anchorman Chad- this guy really knew his fashion!
Allie with Kat Hedden, the 2013 Mrs. New Mexico Pageant Winner, at the Toni & Guy VIP Meet and Greet Party in Albuquerque. She looked divine in our Desert Diva Hot Little Number at the runway show Saturday night…check out below!
Our trunk show at the beautiful Winterowd Fine Art Gallery on Santa Fe’s Historic Canyon Road! Again Karla, thank you so much for having us. She was such a gracious host…not to mention really great at selling Shawl Dawls! See one of our converts below!
After the Winterowd Trunk Show, we headed up to the fashion show venue…

Here are a few shots from the runway…
Aren’t these images beautiful? A big thank you to Matt Timmons Photography for sharing these images.
We love how model Stephanie twirled our custom cape on the runway. So much so, we had to show it again below!
And again! Here’s actress Bobbi Jeen Olson, closing down the show Saturday night!
All in all the experience was incredible. There are so many more photos on our Facebook page- check out the album for Tucson here, and for Santa Fe here. It feels great to know that we are doing what we love and for people who love it too. Happy Fashion Everyone!
P.S. Apparently, we aren’t very good at selfies. This was our fourth attempt, and it’s still blurry 😉
