PM Friday: Be in fashion at Couture for a Cause

Couture for a Cause 2010

Couture for a Cause is back for its 3rd annual edition tomorrow night — Friday — at Marbles Kids Museum. CC2011 is a party and fashion show put on by Activate Good (formerly ME-3), Raleigh's group of unabashed do-gooders. Amber Smith, their founding leader, won an Indy Citizen Award last year. So put this in the shameless plug category if you will: Tickets are $20 if you buy them by midnight tonight, $25 at the door. Good times for a cause.

A cause? The idea is that cool Raleigh-area fashion designers are paired with worthy local nonprofits — then each designer tries for a look that will speak their partners' purpose. For example, last year—per Amber—the designer paired with The Green Chair Project "accessorized" with hats made from lampshades. (Green Chair, you see, is a nonprofit that recycles donated furniture to families in need.)

This year, 18 of our top designers are pitching in for 17 nonprofits (International Focus gets two, apparently). Look here for the list.

The fashion show is slated for 8-10:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:30. A limited-seating dinner starts at 6:30. For all the details, and to buy tickets online, go to the Couture for a Cause website.
