Casa Pacifica and Neiman Marcus Partner Again to Present Spotlight on Style Fashion Show and Luncheon

Westlake Village, CA November 3, 2015 – One of the finest fashion events in Ventura County, the Casa Pacifica Angels “Spotlight on Style” Fashion Show, will return to the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village on Saturday, November 14th, 2015, for another afternoon of fabulous fashion, sumptuous dining, and unique boutique shopping. The hosts of the 14th edition of the runway fashion show, Susan & Ken Bauer, and the Casa Pacifica Angels are excited to be partnering with Neiman Marcus Topanga for the second year in a row, who will produce the runway fashion show and feature the high-style, elegant designer clothing currently available in Neiman Marcus stores.

A champagne reception will open the festivities as guests peruse twenty designer boutiques to find a wonderful collection of accessories, clothing, and gifts that will satisfy their own shopping desires, or purchase one-of-a-kind gifts for their friends and family for the holidays.

An alluring silent auction will offer baskets filled to the brim with amazing experience packages and personal pampering opportunities, including a trip for two to Napa for a three-night stay at the Meritage Resort & Spa, including chauffeur service throughout Napa and Sonoma and a 3-hour gourmet dinner for two on the Napa Valley Wine Train; or a fantastic ski getaway to Lake Tahoe with accommodations at the Tahoe Hyatt Regency; or a fabulous stay at an incredible beach house on Hollywood Beach; and the local restaurant and bar, Twenty88 will host a stylish, hip cocktail and hors d’oeuvres party for 12 guests, among many other fabulous offerings.
