This weekend, fashion fans have a chance to enjoy the works of local designers and help raise money for hearing-imparied Palestinian children living in Gaza at the same time at the 1st Annual Charity Show by Fashion For Good Cause. Event organizer Rhia J. conceived of this runway show and sale in the hopes of, “giving [the children] as much help us weÂ can since we are very fortunate to have a lot of freedom and healthiness.”
Rhia hopes to organize events like this in the city every three to four months and work with a different charity that helps children in a different country each time. Another goal for the events is to give up-and-coming local designers a chance to get their work out of the studio and onto the runway while creating a place for designers, models and photographers to interact and establish new connections.
Participating designers include Charlie Baltimore, Jason Christopher Peters, California Innovations, Ikohl, Cory Tran, Loveline and 5’2 Designs. Vendors like Kendra Biggs, YummyBee and Funky & Fabulous will be touting their wares as part of the event’s shopping component. General admission tickets are $55 and include two drink tickets. VIP tickets with goodie bags, premium runway seating and drink tickets are $85.
