On Wednesday August 19, 2015 The Women’s Home’s 6th annual reNew and reDo fashion show took the Wortham in style despite the stormy weather. Over the course of the evening, the 500 guests shopped all night, fueled by sweet and savory bites from Lady Lavender Confections and Hungry’s Café and Bistro. Among the crowd were Deborah Duncan, Marie and Nancy Dang, Susanne Glasscock, Yasmine Haddad, Janice Hall, Harriet Hart, Ajay Khurana, Mary Axelrad, and Julie Mahler.
Guests watched as volunteer models including Nancy Almodovar, Nick Anderson, Katy Boatman, Cindy Castañeda, Will Chang, Donae Chromosta, Ianne Fastoff, Tracy Faulkner, Varda Dror Fields, Rita Garcia, Nina Gutierrez-Garcia, Sanaz Harirchian, Quang Henderson, Staci Henderson, Euan Holden, Kenya Hunt, Sippi Khurana, Peta-Gay Ledbetter, Laith Mahmood, Naureen Malik, Kristen McDaniel, Nick Merchant, Shawntell McWilliams, Michael Pearce, Bharat Pothuri, and Rachel Suliburt walked the runway in ensembles styled once again by Lenny Matuszewski and Tamara Bonar from the designer donations to The Cottage Shop. All menswear was custom made by LUCHO. LUCHO donated a portion of the custom suits’ sales to The Women’s Home and after the show, the runway styles were wheeled onto the floor to join the rest of the designer clothing, shoes and accessories in the pop up Cottage Shop Boutique where the shopping excitement was in full swing as guests purchased top shelf brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, Dior and many others for bargain prices.
The event featured a silent auction stocked with clothing, accessory, travel and event packages donated from a number of local and national businesses as well as five dresses donated from the closets of this year’s Fashion Icons Carrie Colbert, Joanne King Herring, Tatiana Masse, Theresa Roemer and Elaine Turner. The icons were acknowledged with applause and their own walk on the runway during the show’s opening. The event raised $130,000 for The Women’s Home.
