Au Courant 2014 at Belle Mer

Last Friday, I had the privilege of volunteering at the third annual Au Courant, the fashion show benefit co-hosted by Child & Family and StyleWeek Northeast. As a nice change of scenery from Ochre Court at Salve Regina, this year’s Au Courant was held at Belle Mer on Goat Island. 
I can’t stress enough how amazing this event is. Au Courant is not just a fashionable evening to get dressed up, watch a runway show and enjoy gourmet hors d’oeuvres and drinks. It’s a creative way to raise a lot money for children and families who need the support to achieve their goals for a better future. 
Giving is always in fashion.

It turns out that there are two properties on Goat Island–the Hyatt and Belle Mer. Belle Mer is fresh, more modern venue in Newport, which fits StyleWeek Northeast’s chic rapport. 
Au Courant is one of the most fashionable events in Newport–StyleWeek Northeast brings the most talented designers from New England to showcase the latest and greatest sportswear and formal wear. Here are some of my favorite looks from the evening: 
If you look at the looks from the previous Au Courant runway shows–take a look at 2012 and 2013–I would have to say that this year was the most stylish.

Congratulations to StyleWeek Northeast and Child & Family for hosting a wonderful event!
