Couture for Kids Fashion Show Recap

Did you know that 13 children are diagnosed with a brain tumor each day? In the United States, more than 25,000 children are living with a brain tumor. As you can imagine, a brain tumor diagnosis changes everything for these children and their families. Unfortunately, many of these changes are financial as families try their best to stay afloat while managing the increase in expenses that accompanies taking care of a child in need of a lot of medical care and usually numerous surgeries. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Tootsies partnered to put on the Couture for Kids Fashion Show last week to raise money for these children and their families.

Couture for Kids Fashion Show Recap

I love a fashion show, especially one that supports an amazing cause, so when I received an invitation to attend the Couture for Kids Fashion Show, I jumped at the opportunity. My mom (who is my stand-in date to any and everything while my husband is in France) and I had a fabulous time at the event, which included a silent auction and opportunities to shop in store before the show. The fashion show featured a variety of well known Atlanta personalities, including Monica Pearson, a former broadcast journalist from WSB-TV, and Kristin Klingshirn, the co-host of Q100’s morning show, The Bert Show. The real stars of the show were the kids, who were all brain tumor survivors. The models strutted their stuff on the runway wearing designers such as Valentino, Alexander McQueen, and Carolina Herrera to showcase the hottest trends in fall fashion.

By the end of the Couture for Kids Fashion Show, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as attendees got to hear the inspirational stories of each of the survivors. The kids are truly superstars on and off the runway and seeing their strength and courage really put things in perspective. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation not only serves as the world’s largest non-governmental funder of child brain tumor research, but the organization also supports families by offering educational resources, scholarships, and peer-support programs. The foundation does so much to help so many children and I was honored to attend their Couture for Kids Fashion Show. 100% of the funds raised at Tootsies last Wednesday evening went to the Pediatric Bran Tumor Foundation so that they can continue to make an impact.
