The third annual Style with a Cause event inspiring women through fashion and beauty takes flight on the runway at the Great Hall inside Fashion Show Mall in fabulous Las Vegas Thursday, September 17 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Mercedes from Mix 94.1 and Rachel Smith from Fox 5 will lead guests through a fun-filled night of friends, cocktails, nibbles from Maggiano’s, a fall fashion show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, a real life beauty transformation and recognizing unsung heroes from the Las Vegas community. This year, Style with a Cause benefits Opportunity Village.
Adding to the excitement this year, Style with a Cause will unveil their first-ever collection. Spoonflower and Style with a Cause collaborated to create an exclusive fabric that was gifted to five designers around the country. “Project Runway All Star” Joshua J. Christensen and “Project Runway’s” Carlos Casanova will be two of the five designers along with Las Vegas’s own Jennifer Henry of Flock Flock Flock who creates one-of-a-kind dresses using paper and cellophane. Her fabric will be printed on wrapping paper rolls. As well, local costume designer Christina Rudigier who is currently with Penn & Teller and Human Nature and this year’s Junior League of Las Vegas 2015 “Fashion Forward” winner Ilian Angulo will be creating masterpieces for the designer collaboration. Their one-of-a-kind pieces will walk the runway and be auctioned at the end of the event.
“It’s exciting to watch the growth of Style with a Cause. We hope that one day this will become a nationally recognized women’s movement with Style with a Cause events taking place all around the country,” says Jenna Doughton, Las Vegas-based fashion stylist and founder of Style with a Cause.
