The 2nd annual Blossoming Business Garden Soirée, held on June 6th, themed “A String that Ties Us Together,” encapsulated the essence of connection, community, and collaboration. Held in a stunning garden and poolside oasis at a private residence in New Canaan, CT, guests were invited to shop and experience the best of Fairfield County fashion and lifestyle brands. A highlight of the evening was a pop-up fashion show curated by Ella Barnette, showcasing collections from local brands and local tastemakers as models, including Miss Connecticut Gina Carloto and influencer Zac Mathias, to name a few. They donned top local brands such as Top Banana, Trumpet Southport, Chou Chou, Fred, West 2 Westport, and Everybody Loves The Weekend, with makeup and hair by Whip Salon.

Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed specialty bars by Craftbottlz and Séchey and culinary delights from On the Marc. Sponsors for the evening included ACE Party & Tent Rental, Cos Cob TV & Audio, Craftbottlz, Element Medical Aesthetics, Fresh Flower Bar, On the Marc, Skin by Sarah, and Smith Party Rentals—whose support made the evening unforgettable.

With 20% of the proceeds benefiting S.T.A.R. (Stand Together Against Racism), the soirée not only fostered connections but also contributed to transformative social change. Hosted by Amanda Mintz of Amanda Mintz Creative, Ella Barnette of Ella Barnette Style, Karlie Reitano of Karlie Reitano PR. Laura Sabia of Greenwich Lifestyle and Darien New Canaan Lifestyle Magazines, and Sarah True of True Event, the event was a beautiful testament to the power of community and collaboration.
