Real Women from Bottomless Closet Will Work the Runway Come Fashion Week
It should go without saying that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is all about the glitz, glamour and the amazonian models. The regular gal, as you would expect, doesn’t stand a chance of walking a show during fashion week when said models are around. Well, stylist Derek Warburton along with The Real Housewives of New York star Aviva Drescher, are helping “regular women” be models for a day this fashion week season.
On September 12, lucky ladies from the Bottomless Closet, will strut the runway wearing frocks from top designers including Nicole Miller, Costello Tagliapietra, Lela Rose and more. Not only will the ladies experience an authentic fashion moment but they will also help Bottomless Closet–which helps women get back on their feet after they have been homeless, abused, and incarcerated–raise funds. We call that winning.
A few days ago a select group of ladies attended, as Tyra Banks would say, a “go-see” where they tried on looks and mingled with fellow models.
