Cesar Chavez Park in downtown Sacramento will be the setting for Saturday's R.A.W. Design charity fashion show featuring five - count 'em - five local up-and-coming designers.
Their names and their lines: Shenita Barnes (HyhKlas), Jennifer Schmidt (JennyAngel Co.), Katrina Jones (KJ Diamonds), Kristina York (Berkeley BrownE) and Alicia Brogle (Vanity).
The event starts at 7 p.m. (with the actual show at 8), but if I were you, I'd get there earlier because you'll have a chance to mix and mingle with the designers. A refreshment bar will be set up, hosted by Smart Water, Vitamin Water and Go Girl energy drink.
And, in true fashion-show fashion, the first 250 attendees will receive gift bags. Tucked inside? Something special from each of the designers, gift certificates from local boutiques, and salon coupons and samples.
What will you see on the runway? Well, according to organizer Alexis Weber, who also owns R.A.W. Modeling (which is new to us and is sponsoring the show), it's an opportunity "to showcase that Sacramento has mainstream fashion that we can all embrace."
"We don't have to go to the big cities (read: San Francisco) to get high-end tastes in clothing," Alexis says.
Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at the "red carpet" entrance, which will be set up in the park. And, if you're looking for yet another reason to attend, get this: Part of the proceeds from the fashion show will go to Oakland's Children's Hospital.
