On Thursday night, August 24, The Women’s Home hosted its annual reNew & reDo Fashion Show at the beautiful Ballroom at Bayou Place. Nearly 300 guests shopped the glamorous pop-up boutique (by The Home’s own Cottage Shop, a boutique resale shop in the heart of Montrose) with bags, shoes, dresses, jackets and more by Gucci, Prada, Escada, and St. John, just to name a few. Guests also enjoyed the delectable eats of Chef Ara Malekian, and VIP guests received swag bags with goodies from Tory Burch, Elizabeth Anthony, Adara Med Spa, and more.
Then the posh crowd took their seats for the highlight of the evening, the Fashion Show produced by Lenny Matuszewski and Tamara Bonar, hosted by emcee Elaine Turner. Fashion Icon Joyce Echols was honored at the event. Then the glamorous models – Kat Kearns, Mimi Irvin, Gregg Harrison, Victoria J. Hellyer, and more – took to the runway sporting fabulous looks that were all donated to The Women’s Home and were available for sale to guests after the show. Dr. Karan Sra was named the Show’s Top Model for raising the most money for The Home and its programs.
The after-party featured more fabulous shopping, delicious desserts by Seasons 52, and the music of Bradley Davis Entertainment to keep the party going.
The event raised nearly $100,000 for The Home, a 60 year-old non-profit that provides housing and individually tailored support services to help prevent and end homelessness in the Houston area.
