The 5th Annual Heels2Heal Gala featured a gorgeous Rio de Janeiro inspired spring 2015 Nicole Miller collection on a stunning pop-up runway. The La Jolla women of Heels2Heal hosted a party that lasted until after midnight! The crowds were stylish and even more giving and generous, raising over $150,000 for San Diego Youth Services, whose mission is to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of homeless, runaway, abused, and at-risk youth.
Guests were greeted with Roca Patron tequila shots and cuisines from the best restaurants in San Diego including Puesto Mexican Street Food, La Valencia Hotel, and more. The gala, held at the home of Laleh and Alex Roudi, began at the top of the hill with each level of the grounds unveiling additional fun to the party.
Pantherella Events designed this incredible event from the The Roca Patron tequila bar around the pool to the Men’s lounge with a Henebery Whiskey bar and the Lord Wallington Men’s ties pop-up shop. Another tier was dedicated for photo booth fun — which was at capacity all night long! The journey to the bottom of the hill was met by a grand runway platform where the program and Nicole Miller spring 2015 fashion show made the evening one of the best of the year! The Snake Oil Cocktail bar served up Suja Juice cocktails behind the Copacabana-inspired, geometric wave bar. The beautiful city of Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro served as inspiration for Nicole’s collection and can be seen throughout with the patterns, colors, fruit designs, and skin bearing cutouts. Nicole Miller herself wore a feather mini skirt and a printed top. See below for the most stylish La Jolla women from the Heels2Heal 5th Annual Gala.
