In honor of 27 Dresses, the upcoming 2008 romantic comedy staring Katherine Heigl, Gen Art hosted a SHE Boutique fashion show at Crimson Lounge Tuesday, January 8th. The event benefited The Glass Slipper Project, an organization that collects new and used formal dresses for teenage girls for their proms. Tuesday night the charity accepted bridesmaid dresses and gowns, no matter how old or unattractive. Those who donated dresses are now eligible to win a cocktail dress designed by Project Runway contestant designer Steven Rosengard and receive a one-day 15 percent discount at SHE Boutique.
Crimson, one of the hottest nightlife destinations in the country was packed with fashionistas dressed to impress and sipping on Grey Goose specialty cocktails. The models rocked the runway wearing designs by Chan Luu, Twinkle, Sweetface, Bishop and more. SHE Boutique is located at 1024 W Armitage and offers European and West Coast trends for fashion savvy women who want to stand out.
