Great Mall, the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in Northern California, will present a high-energy fashion runway show during The Fashion Connection, presented by the Milpitas Chamber of Commerce. Benefitting the Milpitas Food Pantry's Clothes Closet, The Fashion Connection will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 5 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Milpitas.
Local celebrities including City of Milpitas Fire Chief Brian Sturdivant, City Council Member Debbie Giordano, and more will walk the runway wearing stylish day and evening attire from Great Mall's celebrated fashion-forward retailers to the beat of today's hottest music. Cristina Robles-Miller, director of marketing and business development at Great Mall says, "Event guests will see firsthand many great looks from several of our popular designer retailers including Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Perry Ellis Outlet, DKNY, Max Studio, Group USA, Original Penguin, Tuxedo Wearhouse, Old Navy Outlet, and Naartjie Kids."
The Fashion Connection will also feature fashions from local emerging designers with a special brunch for attendees. As part of this effort, event goers are encouraged to donate gently used garments to benefit the Milpitas Food Pantry's Clothes Closet, which offers a wide variety of garments and household items to families in need, including school uniforms for kids and a Career Closet for adults.
Tickets cost $50 and can be purchased at www.milpitaschamber.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Milpitas Food Pantry's Clothes Closet. For more information about The Fashion Connection, call (408) 262-2613.
