Raleigh Fashion Fest
October 24 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35 – $70
Shop ‘til you drop at Raleigh Fashion Fest, an inaugural fashion festival coming to downtown Raleigh’s City Market on Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 5-9pm.
Celebrating fashion and food in both Raleigh and across North Carolina, the festival brings together more than 40 locally owned boutiques and vendors. Attendees can pursue and purchase a variety of clothing, shoes, jewelry, gifts, hair and beauty products and more for the ultimate shopping experience.
The night features a collaborative boutique runway fashion show put on by Models For Charity that will showcase inspiring fall fashion looks from participating boutiques and vendors.
While you shop, enjoy music from DJ Supr, drinks from two bars inside of Market Hall—including a signature Raleigh Fashion Fest cocktail—and superb food included with your ticket from beloved local eateries, including:
- Carroll’s Kitchen
- Papa Shogun
- Tastefully Served
- Tonbo Ramen
- Oak City Meatball
- Captain Cookie & The Milkman
The event—held on October 24th in historic City Market—places a large focus on supporting local, empowering women and activating the community through collaboration. Each vendor will donate a portion of sales during the event to Carroll’s Kitchen, a non-profit social enterprise restaurant that provides employment opportunities to women recovering from traumas like homelessness, incarceration, addiction and domestic violence. A silent auction will also take place in which guests can bid on various items from local businesses, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Carroll’s Kitchen as well.
Raleigh Fashion Fest is the first event of its kind in Raleigh, serving as a great way to give back to the local community while scoring a fabulous new wardrobe and gifts for the holidays. The festival is spearheaded by Raleigh Boutique Warehouse Sale’s creative team and Peachy Keen’s Karly Hankin and Jen Hankin.
General admission tickets are available for $35; VIP tickets are $70 and allow access to a front row seat at the Collaborative Fashion Show at either 6:30 or 7:30pm. Tickets are available now on Raleigh Fashion Fest’s website.
