On Saturday, May 12th we joined Lift for Life Academy, a St. Louis based charter school, for their fundraising event An Evening of Fashion & Fanfare, which was held to benefit the amazing students of this great school.
The theme of this event, Fashion & Fanfare, showcased handcrafted fashions made by some of the very talented girls of Lift for Life Academy. They partnered with Laura Kathleen Planck & Michael Drummond of Lifetime Television’s Project Runway to host the affair. Glik’s was fortunate enough to receive the opportunity to become involved in this event by donating the shoes that were handpicked and worn by the fashionistas themselves to ensure that each outfit had a “complete” look.
The lucky fashionistas of Lift For Life Academy received the amazing opportunity to refine their design skills and learn from the wonderful and talented, Laura Kathleen Planck. You may recognize her from season 9 of Project Runway (she finished in the top 5). Planck teaches the fashion design course for this wonderful charter school.
These LUCKY girls worked hard on their fashion lines for the event. Each designer’s artful eye for chic fashion and following current trends, combined with their hard work took center stage May 12th and finished to a standing ovation from the attendees of the event!
Everyone was amazed by all the brilliantly talented fashionistas of Lift for Life Academy and cannot wait to see their future designs. Glik’s was a proud supporter of An Evening of Fashion & Fanfare.
