The Springs Preserve and the Las Vegas Fashion Council are bringing together local and emerging designers to create unique fashions from sustainable fabrics and repurposed materials in the fourth annual Spring Show fashion event, Thursday, April 14 at 5 p.m.
Designers include Wanda Merritt of Vegas Couture, Crystal Ball of Crystal Designs, Ricci Lopez of Stitched, and Kim Bavington, along with designs from local high school students.
Additionally, Milene, a 10-year-old fashion designer diagnosed with lupus and a seizure disorder, will show off her creations thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Las Vegas Fashion Council.
Admission is $150 per person and includes pre-show appetizers, cocktails, performance by Recycled Percussion and an after-party meet-and-greet with the designers at the Divine Cafe. Proceeds from the fashion show benefit programming and educational activities at the Springs Preserve.
Tickets are available at springspreserve.org.
