Last night the Career Wardrobe hosted it's 18th annual fashion show and networking event at the Crystal Tea Room in Center City.
The evening kicked off with an expanded cocktail hour with lots of delicious food by Finley Catering. In tradition with previous years, the Perfect Fit Gala hosted an extensive silent auction. Afterwards guests entered the main ballroom for dessert and coffee, and a fashion show featuring clothes from the Career Wardrobe Boutique at 18th and Spring Garden. The clothes were worn by “celebrity models" that would be donated at the end of the event. A few of the models this year included Fox 29 reporters Karen Hepp, Sue Serio and Dawn Timmeny, as well as 6ABC's Monica Malpass and Amy Buckman, NBC10's Lu Ann Chan and Denise Nakano, and Amber Hikes, who is the director of Penn's Upward Bound high school student college prep program.
Proceeds from the event went to Career Wardrobe to empower women in transition by providing educational programs, networking tools and opportunities in order to make it easier for the women to transition into the workforce by providing professional attire.
