Working the catwalk
Last week, I had the honor and pleasure to walk in the Attitudes & Attire 15th Annual Fashion Show and Luncheon at the Dallas Trade Mart. My friend Janet Fresquez served as the honorary chair and asked me to participate. I actually managed to make it to my fitting, sniffling and all with my cold, but it was SO worth it.
I worked the runway with some of Dallas' hottest personalities including Toni Duclottni, LeeAnne Locken, Dawn Mellon, Danielle Volmar, Allison Volk and Amy Vanderoef. More importantly, some of the wonderful women who work with Attitudes & Attires or who have benefitted from its services also modeled the clothing provided by Elements boutique here in Dallas. It was an amazing event.
Attitudes & Attire™ is a non-profit agency dedicated to promoting personal growth for women seeking self-sufficiency. The program provides the tools that raise self-esteem, promote ethics and build the confidence necessary to develop successful life skills. Clients of Attitudes & Attire are typically single mothers with little personal or financial support, are diverse in age, education and ethnicity and are often victims of abuse, generational poverty, addiction and physical disabilities. All of the women in the program are overcoming adversity and barriers to finding a job. For more information, visit www.attitudesandattire.org
