What’s Hot: Pink Carpet Project

Fashion, glitz and glamour for Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest.

When the Susan G. Komen foundation announced it was cutting critical funding for Planned Parenthood, many were outraged. In a response to the controversy, Northwest designers, make-up artists, models and fashion enthusiasts decided to take matters into their own hands — the Pink Carpet Project will be a night full of fashion and fun to benefit Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest.

Who: Over 10 different Seattle designers will come together for an eclectic line-up of swimwear, bridal, street fashion, eco-friendly design, men’s wear and lingerie. The designers include: La Belle Reve, Banchong Douangphrachanh, SPUN, MEKA Clothing, Fancy Hawk, Miriam Reynolds, Cameron Levin, House of Isaac Andrews and llha Swimwear. The show will also feature Seatttle Magaine Seamless in Seattle Winners, Katie Chrisman, Kate Mensah, and Lady Konnyaku, as well as Lizzie Parker and Liza Vlan Hunter, two contestants from NBC’s upcoming Fashion Star.

One of the most unique installments at this show will be the parade of pasties, modeled by none other then the 2012 reigning Queen of Burlesque, Miss Indigo Blue. After the show, don’t miss the opportunity for a meet and greet with all the designers.

Performing throughout the night will be various Burlesque groups including the Heavenly Spies, Can Can Castaways, and Fuschia Foxx. DJ Sharadawn will be providing the soundtrack for this one of a kind night.

Where: The trendy new FRED Wildlife Refuge on Capitol Hill will be the backdrop to this philanthropic evening of fashion. (127 Boylston Avenue East, Seattle)

When: The show will kick-off at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday March 1st.

How Much: Experience all the glamor of the Pink Carpet as a Table Host ($300) — these tickets include front row table seating for three people, two bottles of Girly Girl Wines, Black Car service to and from the event, appetizers, and a swag bag. As a VIP ($50), receive front row seating and a swag bag overflowing with goodies. Or attend with a Standard ticket at only $25. Tickets can be purchased online.

Why: The goal of the Pink Carpet Project is to encourage designers, as well as the public to embrace Planned Parenthood and appreciate the work they do for women’s healthcare, education and advocacy to all women.
