Southlake students take to the catwalk in the name of charity

For the National Charity League’s Southlake chapter, paying it forward never goes out of style. Since 1998, the organization has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities by putting on a fun and energetic fashion show featuring Southlake Carroll junior and senior models. The show requires the tireless efforts, talents and resources of each of the chapter’s 300 mother and daughter members and a year of planning and preparation.

On March 2, the Hurst Conference Center played host to the fashion forward event, which incorporated professional choreography and featured 14 retail stores who generously donated clothing and accessories — Al’s Former Wear, Cache, Francesca’s, Gap, Girligirl Boutique, Impeccable Pig, Lilly Pulitzer, Malouf’s, Tyler’s, Whatchamacallit, Golf Galaxy, ZAR, Dillard’s and The Limited. Of the 90 models who strutted their stuff, the girls received hair and makeup services from LemonGrass Salons and Corinthian Wellness Spa, while Sport Clips styled male models’ hair. Despite 125 no-shows due to inclement weather, the fashion show was a smash success, selling approximately 650 tickets.

 Annually, the NCL Southlake chapter members provide more than 5,000 hours of community service hours to local philanthropies. The recipients of proceeds received through this year’s ticket sales, sponsorships, donations and auctions included GRACE Feed Our Kids, Summer Santa, Christmas is for Children, Stepping Stones Foundation, Metroport Meals on Wheels, The Battered Women’s Foundation and Southlake Special Olympics.
