Pool Party & Fashion Show for Charity

VIVE Katerin stopped by The Talent Xchange’s “Fashions by the Pool” charity event at the Grace Hotel in Times Square benefitting the Institute for Cancer Research.  The beautiful pool and lounge which are literally in the lobby of the hotel just behind the reception area were illuminated with colored light which added dramatic effect to the trendy, Scandavian-style furniture and blonde wood panels.  The event began with a red carpet photo shoot with hosts Johnny Donovan (MTV/VH1 reality TV mogul), Naomi Defensor (of MTV’s Real World Las Vegas) and a host of other reality show celebs.  Angela Pivarnick, former Jersey Shore star was joined by Jeff Miranda, boyfriend of Jersey Shore star Snooki.  SiTV’s “Model Latina” winners Jessica Caban and Codie Cabral were also in attendance.

The party heated up when guest DJ Teso started spinning and the fashion show got underway showcasing swimwear collections from designers Johanna Sarria, Joy Couture and KM Swimwear.  Couture footwear designer John Ashford outfitted many of the models with amazing custom made shoes.

Sponsor, Talent Xchange is an entertainment industry networking website for actors, models, designers, photographers and writers. Talent Xchange owner, Reggie Menos was in attendance overseeing all details of the event to make everything ran smoothly and everyone had a great time.
