Hello everyone! I’m Alicia, a student, social media addict and blogger at River City Chic. River City Chic is a personal style blog I started after moving to the lovely capital of the South over a year ago. I’m originally from Northern Virginia, and I went to school in Philadelphia for a couple years and interned for a couple fashion companies in New York City before relocating to Richmond in the fall of 2011.

One of my favorite things about Richmond is the unique fashion scene it has. After living up and down the Mid-Atlantic, I can honestly say that Richmond has it’s own sense of style like none other.

For the many RVA fashionistas out there, RVA Fashion Week is hosting A Winter Gala on December 13th from 7:30-9:30 PM at Flames 231. This unique event will feature a cocktail hour and fashion show, with a portion of ticket proceeds going to Dress for Success.

RVA Fashion Week

Dress for Success is an organization that strives to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

The fashion show will showcase some of the hottest winter trends, with clothing from local boutiques Pink, Roan and Phoenix and designers Jennifer Carpenter & Brittany Covington. Still models will be a virtual display of amazing shoes, jewelry & hair provided by Champagne & Shoes, Random by Ciera and hair by VIP Salon & Salon Vivace.

There will be performances by Ameera & an afterparty with DJ M.A.S.S. Fx.

Tickets are available for purchase on the RVA Fashion Week website and include a complimentary drink and light hors d’oeuvres. You must purchase a ticket and have it with you to gain entry to the event.

I hope to see some of you there! This is a one of a kind event for a great cause. If you can’t make it out, make sure to check out River City Chic for a recap of this fashion packed evening.
