One beautiful and sunny Las Vegas spring day, Phat Strad headed south of the Strip to the M Resort for an upscale gala event hosted by Gulf Oil. With its stylish and tranquil atmosphere and beautiful views of the desert scenery, the venue was the perfect place for the party – a fundraising benefit to support cancer research. The ladies of Phat Strad, sporting pink accents for the cause, provided uptempo background music for cocktail hour while guests mingled, chatted, and visited the booths of the various vendors in attendance. Once the guests headed inside for dinner, however, the string quartet went backstage to prepare for one last set: joining models on the catwalk for a charity fashion show, with a grand finale performance of Katy Perry’s “Firework” that brought the audience to a standing ovation. Truly a wonderful evening for a wonderful cause!
It’s not every day that you encounter high fashion with a wild jungle twist! The ladies of Phat Strad were lucky enough to be special guests at the annual fashion show for Tootsies, a high-end Houston department store similar to Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales. After traveling to Houston, the quartet was surrounded by couture and outfitted in chic white gowns; the morning of the event, the girls arrived at the Royal Oaks Country Club and were styled with “lion’s mane” hairdos to go with the show’s jungle theme. For the grand finale of the fashion show, Phat Strad walked the runway alongside models and animal actors, and amazed the crowd, who thought the beautiful AND talented girls were just too good to be true! The electric quartet stayed on the stage afterward to entertain the guests – influencers, fashionistas, and the majority of Houston’s high society – throughout their brunch. This truly was a spectacular, memorable, and fashionable event!
