Redazzle, a benefit for Hope’s Door, is having a fashion show at the Historic Cotton Mill this Thursday, February 25th at 6:30 pm. At least a couple of downtown merchants will have be vending there, according to a young woman who was manning a table this morning on the square selling tickets. Downtown merchants that will be vending at the event include Swanky Boutique, Another Place and Time, Total Body Health and David Quisenberry Photography. Hope’s Door is the only women and children’s shelter in Collin County, currently 20 beds but hoping to expand capacity. Redazzle is an annual benefit fashion show featuring a runway show, a silent auction and an accessory exchange for gently worn jewelry, scarves, belts, etc. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the door. This event is hosted by TrendSetters Int.

I am jazzed about this event because of the “coolness” factor of Swanky’s clothes. I don’t know if Swanky is just going to be vending or if any of their clothes will actually see the runway. They had some of the most adorable coats this past fall for both women and little girls – absolutely runway worthy while still being down-to-earth enough to wear out in the real world.
Chestnut Square Museum is presenting a vintage fashion show, “Yesterday and Today Fashion Show and Mimosa Brunch” at Cafe Malaga on Saturday, February 27th from 10:30 to 12:30. This runway will feature fashions from the 1840’s to the 1930’s and the ticket price of $15 includes a light brunch. This fashion show is sponsored by downtown merchants Cotton Hearts, Orisons, Pumps and Arabella’s, in conjunction with The Heritage Guild of Collin County and the Dallas Costumer’s Guild. Tickets are available on-line through the Chestnut Square Museum’s web site, click here.
This will be a busy day at Cafe Malaga as the Unbiological Sisterhood will also be meeting there that day. The Unbiological Sisterhood is an active women’s meet-up group that enjoys group outtings in the McKinney, Melissa, Plano areas and is open to women of all ages and backgrounds who like to get out and “do girl stuff” and enjoy what our area has to offer. I missed their visit to Walls of Clay today but they are constantly scheduling exciting and fun events in the downtown area. If you are interested in joining the Unbiological Sisterhood, see their site on Meetup.com.
Both events sound like a lot of fun. I already have my tickets to both. Now, I just have to hope my schedule will cooperate!
Until next time,
