This post is also available in: Spanish

From Thursday April 4th through to Sunday April 7th, the annual “MIR Bazaar” at the La Romana Country Club in Casa de Campo was open for business, raising funds to support the Fundación MIR’s schools in La Romana, with the “Ladies Luncheon” hosted by Lian Fanjul de Azqueta founder of the Fundación MIR and Raysa Fanjul attracting quite a crowd on Saturday afternoon.

While golf teams were out on the greens, and Casa de Campo villa owners, friends, and family enjoyed shopping for gifts, accessories, jewelry, and clothes the La Romana Country Club catered another beautiful Luncheon and Fashion Show benefiting the MIR Foundation. There are few things in life better than shopping, food, and fashion shows and this luncheon combined all three!

While guests filled the room and their plates, girls from the MIR foundation got dressed and prepared to strut their stuff on the runway that weaved through luncheon tables and clubhouse.  Guests enjoyed a salad assortment, choices of salmon or meat, stand-out potatoes, and a delicious dessert assortment were passed around at the end.

A few girls from the MIR Foundation modeled designs from Gomez Gracia including floor-length gowns, one-of-a-kind dresses, and unique skirts. The styles, materials, and cuts all varied and each piece had its own outstanding flare. Whilst the little ones modeled clothes by Jumbo, which was later on given to them! The show was eye-catching and ladies went and bought looks straight off the runway!

We had such a great time we’re already looking forward to next year! Special thanks to our hostesses for the beautiful event!
