Fashioned for a Cause: "Shoes for the Soul"

We love everything about this event -- the theme (FASHION), the location (W HOTEL) and best of all the cause!

La Chica Chic and Fashion Careers College are teaming to bring you an evening of stylish accessories and a glimpse at emerging fashion designers for the benefit of the non-profit organization "Shoes for the Soul."

The event is Thursday, March 5th from 6-9 pm at the W Hotel (their awesome "BEACH" rooftop bar and lounge). The goal of the event is to provide shoes for children and youth whose families are at or below the poverty line.

Admission to the event is a brand new pair of children or youth footwear in original packaging, or $15, at the door.

You will enjoy boutique shopping from specialty vendors and a fashion show featuring emerging designers from Fashion Career College (we love that there is an element of education here too!) A competition for the best designer will be held as judges choose their favorite.

THE TIP: Make sure that you wear open-toed shoes to this event... there is an awesome element about the BEACH bar at the W... nothing like cool sand between your toes as you sip a cocktail in front of the fire pit...
