“The fashion show will feature unforgettable designs for all tastes and styles,” said Kate Price, co-owner of Tre Bella Bridal. “It will be a great opportunity to see cutting-edge fashion in a wonderful setting. ” Pat Nathan, founder of the local Dress for Success Triangle N.C. affiliate, will emcee the event.

The event will feature wedding event ideas, hors d’oeuvres, a signature drink, amazing raffles, and culminate in a fashion show at 8:00 p.m. Couture bridal gowns by Melissa Sweet, Priscilla of Boston, Angel Sanchez, Junko Yoshioka, Lela Rose, and Manuel Moto will be modeled. Triangle boutiques will feature ready-to-wear clothing including daywear, cocktail and resort clothing.
