fashion for a cause

rgv has been jam-packed with awesome events over the last week or so, and we had the pleasure of attending the fashion for a cause event on april 6th, hosted by the junior league of mcallen on the rooftop of niu urban living. 

the event started with a champagne reception at niu, which gave everyone the chance to peruse the store (for those of us who had never been!), followed by cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the rooftop, which preceded the fashion show for girls and women featuring styles from uniques, sylvia's and zoodles. 

the fashion show was interspersed with performances by some of the talented young models (including a cover of elle king's "exes and ohs")  as well as the guys from wildfox films, who danced to zz top's "sharp dressed man", along with some good-natured participants from the audience. 

not only was this event a blast, but it showcased local boutiques, businesses, caterers, models, beauty and hair styling; all provided or donated by rgv businesses, which we love to see! the show was a win-win partnership of local companies participating in an event to benefit a non profit dedicated to improving our local community: the junior league of mcallen. 

if you missed the show this year, be on the look out for more events hosted by the junior league of mcallen, and for this annual event again next spring!
