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!

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 😉
