In the name of spring fashion, Bridgeport Village is hosting the fourth annual Ladies Who Brunch charity fashion show May 1.

Hosted by radio and television personality Byron Beck, the fashion show takes place at Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar. More than a dozen stores will showcase the latest styles.

“We are taking the event to new heights this year,” Beck said in a press release. “The energy at this fashion show will be explosive.”

Proceeds benefit Women of Meridian Park, a group that supports projects to enhance patient care at Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center.

“Now an annual tradition, the Ladies Who Brunch fashion show is all about women helping women,” said Legacy Health Associate Director of Development Jan Renfro in a press release. “Thanks to our partners at Bridgeport Village, this fun event supports our efforts to provide comfort items and post-operative garments to women in the South Metro community courageously living with breast cancer.”

In addition to viewing models strutting down the runway, the event offers attendees a full brunch and swag bags filled with fashion offers and merchandise. There also will be a beauty and accessory bar, raffle prizes and a silent auction.

Rustic House of Fashion, Soft Surroundings and Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th.
