2014 marked the fifth year for Pittsburgh Fashion Week. The fashion action took place September 22-28, 2014. I recently attended the Macy’s Fashion Rocks fashion show that was held at the Macy’s in Downtown Pittsburgh. This fashion show displayed fashions you can wear for work that easily transitions for an evening out on the town. Guests also got a sneak preview of student designs from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. There were light refreshments from Savoy Restaurant in Pittsburgh.

There was also a local rock band to provide entertainment after the fashion show.
Pittsburgh recently hosted its fourth annual Fashion Week. The festivities concluded on September 29, 2013.
Fashion Week in Pittsburgh made its debut in 2010. Seven days of fashion shows and events held at various venues throughout the city. I attended the fashion show that was held at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh on September 28, 2013. I saw the designs from some extremely talented students.

I attended the Fun, Fit & Fabulous Women’s Health Conference that was held August 17, 2013 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. This conference was sponsored by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. The conference started off with a fitness warm-up to get the ladies moving in the morning. The women could take advantage of the health screenings that were being offered or attend the seminars.
After did my health screenings, I attended a cooking demonstration being conducted by Elise Wims. Elise, a Pittsburgh native participated on Season 9 of Hell’s Kitchen where she placed third overall. She made a delicious watermelon salad. I also attended another cooking demonstration Elise held in the afternoon where she made her goddess smoothie. Her website also has recipes. http://www.elisethedivachef.com/
