Presenting a fashion show that isn’t all about looks
This Saturday, Venue on Market will host “Shine! Fashion Show”, a creative event on fashion created by Love Without Reason (LWR), an organization that truly shines.
The show will feature clothing from local boutiques such as Ruby’s Warehouse and headlining designer Victoria Wilmoth. Ruby’s Warehouse holds custom and unique clothing in Chattanooga and “Shine!” will showcase their fashion and more on the upcoming runway for LWR in the hopes of shining a light on LWR’s work as well as boost Chattanooga’s community businesses.
LWR is a nonprofit organization that provides free surgeries to children born with head and facial deformities. LWR was established right here in Chattanooga by Santhosh and Susan Mathews. When their son was born with numerous birth defects and underwent extensive surgeries, they thought of other children around the globe who are not as fortunate they were. Therefore, they took it upon themselves to support children worldwide and help them overcome deformities.
This year, LWR is working with “Project Butterfly,” to help women rescued from sex trafficking build entrepreneurial skills for future careers. Human Trafficking has always been a global problem, but Chattanooga is taking the initiative to stop and prevent such acts from occurring. Join the fight against trafficking in our hometown, support children worldwide, and strut your best catwalk while you’re at it.
