The Salon Professional Academy of Tacoma will be hosting "Sticks and Stones," the second annual RAGS to Runway fashion show at The Salon Professional Academy of Tacoma - where fashion, function and fundraising come together in an evening of community enjoyment.
The salon is located at 3702 South Fife Street Tacoma and doors open at 5:30 p.m. this evening. Tickets are on sale now at the Salon Professional Academy front desk.
Proceeds from the show and sale will benefit the YWCA Domestic Violence programs. The fashion show will give Salon Professional Academy students an opportunity to collaborate with local designers of jewelry, clothing, and accessories to create inspired high-fashion hair and makeup looks. There will be an opportunity to purchase the artists' creations that are modeled.
"It's a great opportunity for students to come together, showcase talent, be creative and help benefit the community," says Karen Shea, event facilitator.
A portion of all sales, combined with underwriting from local businesses and individuals, benefits the YWCA's domestic violence prevention and intervention programs. This year's Fashion Show and sale will continue to support and promote the YWCA's comprehensive menu of domestic violence services , which provide clients real tools to change their lives through safety, healing, and empowerment.
The RAGS WEARABLE ART concept developed in 1994 as opportunity to raise money for the YWCA while giving talented local fiber artists and clothing designers a venue to showcase and sell their work.
