The fun was kicked off with wine and champagne upon arrival, where guests enjoyed posing in front of Lifestyle Magazine’s step and repeat backdrop for a photo opportunity. While mingling and sipping, attendees could purchase prize drawing tickets for the chance to win a beautiful pair of Eternity Collection 20kt Gold and Diamond Slice Earrings, courtesy of Coomi, as well as a $1,000 shopping spree at Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale or an amazing Jo Malone basket. Jackie Howe, Erica Morse and Christina Haligman were the three lucky winners that day. While the attendees enjoyed a lovely luncheon, they viewed the gorgeous fashions presented by Neiman Marcus. Of course, no PAWS event would be complete without mobile adoptions, and several puppies that were looking for new homes not only attended Fashion Forward, but also joined the models in their final walk. Sponsors included Christy Gumberg, Lorraine Thomas, Christine Forman & Margaret Meldeau, ACURE, Jeannie Hudson, Tanya &
