Limited Brands Fashion Show Performance
. From Elizabeth Carbone: Currently planning a Fashion Show themed event on October 17 for our distribution center workers. We’re looking to bring in a group for a ~10 minute, high-energy performance (hip-hop-esque) for halfway through the show. These are pretty low key events, with one in the morning (9:30–10:30am) and one in the evening (8:30–9:30pm). We would be more than happy to compensate the group for their time. Contact:
