By Steven Bales:
Tomorrow evening a spectacular fashion show and fundraiser will be held on the deck of Buffalo's own USS The Sullivans naval ship. That's right, it's a fashion show on a big old battleship - something that's a bit out of the ordinary and should be quite the production.
According to www.buffalonavalpark.org
, The Sullivans served with distinction in WWII, took part in intense combat in the Marshalls, Carolines, Mariannas, and Philippines, rescued many survivors from downed planes and damaged or sinking ships, and earned nine battle stars for her service. On September 28th 2012, this historic vessel will be the feature display along with a cast of amazing models participating in 7 Chances Charity Fashion Show's "Runway on the Water"! (see Facebook
Seven Chances & Bales Clothing Company
invite you to attend their charity fashion show - "A Couture Charity Event & Fashionable Fundraiser". The combined vision is to bring a little bit of the NYC fashion scene to WNY's Inner Harbor. I heard 'through the grapevine' that there will be a red-carpet affair with a 'lime twist' and a tasty spread of local fare. Not to mention the cool VIP bags that come with free shirts, candles and other goodies.
We're going to bring out some of the big guns for this show - The Sullivans packs four 5-inch/38-caliber guns; one 3-inch/50-caliber gun; two twin-40 mm guns & depth charges! How cool is that? 7 Chances is bringing some heavy artillery to the show too with a fashionable arsenal of models and designers. We will see designs from Kori Cichocki who participated in Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week; Buffalo State College student Jasmine Chong who was featured in Runway 5.0; NYC Designer Jennifer Cantwell; Dsgnr MarQuitaLouise, Buffalo 1st Speed Designer; SAI ONE Boutique; Ms Eye Candy Boutique; PS Accessories; Chic and Sweet; The Grift Kings; Omi; rELLE my; Dharma; Buddhahood and Bales Clothing! It's going to be a fun-filled night of fashion - one that you won't want to miss.
7 Chances is also having a "hand-bag-grab" bag raffle with a chance to win 1 of 10 handbags and 1 chance to win a handbag with some serious cash in it! Local artist Dario Mohr will be providing a live art demonstration. Dario has offered to donate the piece of art he creates, to be raffled off that evening. And finally, there will be an array of vendors from Buffalo, NY including Lotions & Potions, Eyes Downtown and Bales Clothing.
