Fashion for Life to fight cancer, feature boutiques

A charity gala and fashion show scheduled for Thursday will feature Charlotte boutiques and business, with proceeds donated to the fight against cancer.

Fashion for Life, part of STYLE Week Charlotte, will be held in the lobby of the Belk Theater on North Tryon Street uptown.

Several Charlotte boutiques will showcase their wares, said spokeswoman Meredith Holt. Child models who have battled life-threatening illnesses will be outfitted in clothes from Peek-a-Boo Couture Boutique, and the grown-ups will wear designs from Elle VJ and The Pink Hanger. The event is being hosted by Sasha's Spa, a mobile-spa service.

Tickets are $35 each and include light food and two drinks. All proceeds go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
