Tonight, see 24 real New York women walk the runway in the last official show on the Fashion Week calendar.
The non-profit organization Bottomless Closet (which provides interview clothing and other services to help women get back to work) has teamed up with several top designers to create glamourous looks for real women (i.e. not surperhumanly lanky and beautiful models).
The"REAL FASHION, REAL WOMEN" event at the Empire Hotel (right across from the Lincoln Center tents) will feature looks by Nicole Miller, Betsey Johnson, Rachel Comey, Lela Rose, and more designers.
Your $50 ticket price includes complimentary cocktails by Svedka and a portion of ticket sales will go to Bottomless Closet. All of the designer looks from the runway will be auctioned off with 100% of proceeds going back to the organization.
