MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Over 400 people are expected to attend a stylish event in Miami Beach while giving back to the community.
Style Saves hopes to build confidence through clothes by giving underprivileged students in South Florida brand new clothes for back-to-school.
The organization is hosting a fundraiser Thursday night to kick off the Miami Swim Week that will feature four designer fashion shows. Among the runway shows will be looks by Trina Turk, Atrium, Papi swimwear for men and iShine swimwear for women.
Style Saves works with local retail stores and boutiques to help outfit the students. The group last year partnered with Big Brothers, Big Sisters to style more than 50 students. The goal this year is to impact at least 100 students.
