Fashion Tribe: ‘Sporty’ spring at Bloomingdale’s
BY NADINE KAM / firstname.lastname@example.org
Me and anything sports-related don’t mix, and if anyone asks me any questions about the Super Bowl or recent Pro Bowl events in town, I just have to respond, “Huh?”
I generally run from anything sport-related, but a Jan. 30 “Welcome to Fashion Paradise” runway show at Bloomingdale’s offered a glimpse of that rarified world as members of the NFL Players Association filled seats to take in the newly arrived Spring-Summer 2016 collections.
The NFL Players Association was formed to help the players and their families in all aspects of their lives, from collective bargaining to dealing with sudden fame, making travel arrangements and finding financial advisors and agents.
Travel managers help to coordinate events for wives, girlfriends, moms and other friends and family members traveling with the players to various cities, and the fashion show was one of the events on the agenda during the Pro Bowl.
The women proved to be just as entertaining as the show itself, bringing new meaning to the idea of sporty fashion. The show’s four segments were devoted to island-inspired casual wear, the season’s whites and color collections, and a “Hot Hawaii Nights” segment timed for Valentine’s Day date nights.
