Art N Fashion benefits Local Charities at Glade Cultural Center

By  | 

The Glade Cultural Center, the new home of Glade Arts Foundation and Glade Gallery, opened its doors on Thursday, March 29, 2018 and hosted the premier event called Art N Fashion.

Art N Fashion brought together art and fashion enthusiasts, local nonprofit organizations and supporters, and members of the community for an afternoon of fashion, food and fun – all for a great cause. Proceeds from the event benefited Canopy Cancer Survivorship Center, CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County, Glade Arts Foundation, Interfaith of The Woodlands and the Montgomery County Women’s Center.

As guests arrived in their best party chic attire at the newly remodeled space at 2000 Woodlands Parkway, previously known as The Woodlands Information Center, they were treated to hors d’oeurves, martinis, and champagne as they mingled and participated in a raffle and giveaways before the show.

The New York-style fashion show was orchestrated by Kashay Mendes, owner of Designer Divas, where community leaders walked down a beautiful white runway in the latest looks inspired by fine art at Glade Gallery. DJ Manny Patel set the tone with upbeat party hits as each model showcased their style and personality before a panel of judges and the cheering crowd. At the end of the show, the judges recognized Kashay Mendes and all of the models for their dedication and support in giving back to each local charity that the models represented.
