Event Details

For the first time, Charleston has its own Cure by Design event, joining four other East Coast cities—including Washington, D.C., and Charlotte, North Carolina—in throwing a fundraising fashion show for the American Cancer Society.

Cancer survivors from around the Lowcountry (read each one’s story on the event website) model clothing by national designers including Alex Garfield, Cynthia Rowley, and Gordana Gehlhausen. In addition, Charleston’s Rachel Gordon is debuting the “One Love, Rebecca Grace Collection” in honor of her mother, who lost her battle against cancer a year ago, while 17-year-old local Cali Artigues is creating a dress for her aunt to wear down the runway. A reception and live and silent auctions round out this moving celebration of life. Memminger Auditorium, 56 Beaufain St. Saturday, 6:30 p.m. $175. (843) 343-1223,
