Couture in the Courtyard

First of all, so sorry for the lack of posts. Second of all, you're so very welcome for this one!

My mother (pictured below) and I attended the Second Annual Couture in the Courtyard today, which is a huge event sponsored by Whitney Bank that benefits our local South Florida Museum. Catching up with friends, participating in numerous raffles, and being served a top-notch lunch by Michael's on East provides for a fabulous event. And what could make it even more fabulous?
 A fashion show, of course! Sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue, this year's Couture in the Courtyard fashion show boasted a plethora of designers, from my personal faves Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Tory Burch to the equally wonderful designs of Escada, Nicole Miller, and BCBG Max Azria .

I took as many pictures as I possibly could, purely for your viewing pleasure. Oh! And please pardon any blurriness, imposing plants, light poles, heads of onlookers, etc.
There were some awkward seating arrangements.
