Fashion stepped forward to lend a helping hand on Nov. 21 as Foxwoods Resort Casino, Shrine Foxwoods and Tanger Outlets, Foxwoods hosted the first ever Holiday Pop Up Fashion show, Sleigh the Runway to support Stuff the Bus.
Stuff the Bus is a campaign of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut.
Just in time for Black Friday, Nov. 24, shopping at Tanger Outlets, the fashion show featured John Casablancas Modeling & Acting Agency models wearing holiday looks from the outlets.
In support of Stuff the Bus, guests to the event at Shrine in Foxwoods were asked to bring a jacket, gloves, toys etc. for free admission.
Miss Connecticut Eliza Lynne Kanner was on hand as well hosting and collecting donations. She also took to the runway wearing an Armani dress available at Tanger Outlets.
The models from John Casablancas also were appearing in advance of the Tanger Top Model Search on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Tanger Outlets, Foxwoods. At the open call, aspiring and experienced models will get a chance to be seen by agents from IMG, Elite, NY Model Management, Surface and Ohlsson Talent.
