    Inspired Style presented by Churchill Downs on Saturday, April 7, 2012 features Derby fashions from some the hottest boutiques and designers from Sunny Daize Boutique, Boutique Serendipity, blink Boutique and Optik by Korrect. The models will be bronzed and beautiful thanks to sponsors Sun Tan City and Bennie and Friends. 

    The event has been a long-time collaboration in the works from Joey Wager of J Wager Group, Andre Wilson of Style Icon and Churchill Downs. Wagner said he is “excited about our Inspired Style Derby Fashion Show and I feel that Andre and I will put together the premier Kentucky Derby Fashion show every year.” He also said that he feels “we both think outside the box, so I feel that some of the stuff we are doing during this show is going to be awesome.”

    The event starts at 7:00 p.m. with a red carpet entrance followed by a cocktail reception and then the fashion show will take place with emcee Angie Fenton of The Voice-Tribune and WHAS 11’s Great Day Live. After the show attendees will have the opportunity to show from the sponsors in their unique pop-up boutiques with music throughout the event from DJ Ryan Coxx.

    “The Kentucky Derby is one of the most fashionable sporting events in the world and we’re showing what the current trends are to enhance the style aspect of the Derby and Oaks” said Wilson of Style Icon. While there are no rules on what you have to wear, this fashion show will give you some fabulous ideas to take into consideration for whatever your plans may be for this exciting weekend in Louisville, Ky.

    Inspired Style Derby Fashion Show tickets start at $50.00 and front row tickets are $65.00; all ticket holders will also receive a swag bag to prep them for the Derby 2012 weekend. For additional information contact Wagner at or go to

    A portion of the proceeds benefit the Churchill Downs Incorporated Foundation / Kentucky Equine Humane Center.

    About Bella Portaro

    Happiness Cultivator. Blogger. Writer. Social Media and PR Maven. Dreamer. Louisville Lover. Blogger at Bella of Louisville; a lifestyle blog. A lifestyle is- by definition to me - the way in which one chooses to live their life. As I’ve entered into this chapter / book of my life with a strong understanding of who I am, lifestyle has become about the art of living well. This idea goes beyond creating a beautiful home and investing in my wardrobe. Living well means being kind, being good company, contributing to your community, and becoming a person of substance and grace. If designing a life full of substance and grace isn’t aspirational, I don’t know what else is. I love writing about events and things to do in Louisville. I hope you enjoy my posts and connect with me on social media!
