LT to host fashion show benefiting domestic violence shelter

LA GRANGE – Lyons Township High School will present Falling for Fashion, a fashion show benefiting The Hope Chest, an upscale resale shop associated with the Constance Morris House, a domestic violence shelter that provides safety and support for women and children in the western suburbs.

The show will be 2 p.m. Sept. 30 at Lyons Township High School's North Campus Reber Center, 100 S. Brainard Ave., La Grange.

The event is hosted by the LT National Hispanic Institute, with support from LT’s fashion and interior design class. It is open to all ages, and it will feature several dozen student-models, according to an LT news release.

Tickets are $5. They are for sale at LT and The Hope Chest, and they also will be available at the door, the release stated.

Student-models recently were analyzed and fitted by students in the fashion and interior design class, and fashion students will take a field trip to The Hope Chest to pull clothes for their models, according to the release.

The event is being held to raise awareness for domestic violence prevention and to raise funds for the Constance Morris House. Fashion show attendees will be treated to the latest fashions available in the store to demonstrate how stylish the local resale store can be, the release stated. 

Both The Hope Chest and the Constance Morris House are run by Pillars Community Health, the largest nonprofit provider of mental health and social services in the western and southwestern suburbs of Chicago.

The Hope Chest is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 123 Hillgrove Ave in downtown La Grange. For more information, visit thehopechest.com.
