Contrary to popular belief, fashion doesn't have to be frivolous. For example, 20 percent of the sales from this party will benefit Project Healthy Smile, a local organization that promotes oral-health education as well as providing dental products to poverty-stricken children around the world. The fashion show will feature Kokoon, a line designed by Laine Sou Weinberg that is filled with flirty tops and dresses that are ladylike but not too girly. Those feeling a little rundown will want to sign up for a mini-makeover, or ask for some style tips from HMStyling. In addition to nourishing your soul and your wardrobe, you will also be able to nourish your body with wine and appetizers. Free; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
