On Sunday, June 10, 2018, the 3rd Annual Fashion for a Cause took place on the lovely outside patio of St. Clair Country Club in Upper St. Clair, Pa. The event was coordinated and led by Lisa Wagner Freeman, real estate agent and president of the REALTORS® Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh’s RAMP Foundation (realtorspgh.com/Home/RAMP-Foundation), a Pittsburgh-area nonprofit.
Though the sky threatened rain, it held out for the over 250 guests as they mingled and shopped the vendor sales while awaiting the main event, the fashion show. Delightful art by David Connolly was available for purchase, along with skincare, jewelry, and clothing from the vendors.
This year, 50 models took part in the show, ranging in age from 2 to 75 and including all sizes and shapes. Models were treated to hair and makeup by South Hills and North Hills Beauty Academy of Pittsburgh, Pa.
The “Fashion Through the Decades” theme showcased changes in fashion, with vintage apparel by Pink Tulle Vintage, Modcloth, and The Clothes Horse, and current fashions from Vintage Valet and Wight Elephant.
The beneficiary of the event, Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh, provides residential homes and care for adults with intellectual disabilities.
