Flourish was an elegant and contemporary fundraiser fashion show created by William Maestas Productions. Rove hosted the event that blended fashions from local boutiques and designers with hair designs and makeup artistry from local stylists. The goal of Flourish was to raise funds for local nonprofit WomenGive, which offers support and childcare scholarships to single mothers pursuing further education. The runway featured segments from designers and brands including Salwa Owens, Gino Veraldi, Tyne Hall, Karen Espinosa, Zinnia, Sheath, GD4GD as well as CSU graduates, including PVRVNOIV by Ryland Alms, MADDFIT by Maddy Remias, McD. by Sarah McDonell, and Jemma Jackman. Local boutiques that were modeled included Blue Harvest, Cira Ltd., JB Elliot, Mystique Lingerie, GLENN+GLENN, Nganoh and Edge Optics. The evening raised over $5,000 for WomenGive with a sold out show.
