Bree Carroll founded Military Marriage Day and it is recognized on August 14th each year. Bree Carroll is kicking off the year on the national day of love that’s known as Valentine’s Day. Her kick-off event is the GY6 Fashion Show that will live-stream virtually on Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 3:00 PM. This fashion production is being curated by her own brand of B. Carroll Events, LLC. Set to feature military designers, models and brands; this virtual runway of military creatives will be similar to New York Fashion Week with a military flair.
“World War I fighter pilots first used the phrase “I got your 6”. It speaks to how military members look out for each other and of loyalty, camaraderie, and ethos,” states Bree Carroll. “The heart of GY6 is in the story of helping military couples develop a strong foundation that will see them through the unique challenges they will face,” she continues. Current statistics show that military marriages have their own specific challenges that may differ from civilian unions. From stress to weathering absences, military marriages are a cause of celebration as couples manage to maintain their love during both active duty and retirement.
“My hope is for GY6 to serve as a means for couples to gather to have fun while helping to curb those marital issues”, states Carroll. “With Valentine’s Day being the universal day of love, our focus is unity and to allow attendees to view love to experience a taste of military life through fashion. What better day to demonstrate the power of love than by celebrating couples who are committing to love and being loved for a lifetime,” Bree explains.
The GY6 Show will highlight fashions from veteran and military spouse designers and brands. Participating fashion brands include: Charlie Madison Originals, Damien Lee, Michelle Collins-Windle, Triple Nikel and talent support from Final Touch Models. There will be a special tribute by Operation Deploy Your Dress which is a national nonprofit whose mission is to collect new/gently used formal attire for military servicewomen and spouses at no cost to them. Hershey’s will also share its appreciation and gratitude for our Armed Forces by giving away chocolate to select GY6 attendees.
Bree Carroll is highlighting love with fashion to showcase unity in the military community. The GY6 Show is curated in love through her own experience, creative production and dedication for others with Valentine’s Day as the backdrop.
