On Thursday in SoMa, Tracy Bryan and the National MS Society hosted Fashion For A Cause at 111 Minna to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis. Proceeds from the event benefited MS education and services. Local designers flaunted their lines in a high energy fashion show, and local retailers such as Heliotrope presented their latest products in a vibrant atmosphere. Patrons, models, retailers and designers filled the venue in anticipation of the looks that would make their way down the catwalk. Here are a few choice picks from the show:

WORKSF sent casual, cool looks down the runway that definitely turned heads:

Other designers featured at the event included Mary Meg Rossi, Amarantine, Invisible Heroes, Rock Chiq, Masha Archer, Melissa Bolin, Stephanie Edwards Designs, Lisa Lebow Jewelry and Zansus Purses.
After the show, a few lucky winners received raffle prizes that entitled them to enjoyable treats from retailers across the City, and the crowd was serenaded with a couple more songs to boogie down to before we called it a night.
