The Glenview Giving Foundation and Northbrook's Andreas Hogue Salon presented a fall fashion show Monday entitled Fashion, Film, and Fun at the Glen 10 Regal Movie theatre in Glenview's Glen Town Center.
The Chicago-based production company Benjamin Cottrell Designs along with Darlene Burnham, an Andreas Hogue stylist and Paul Mitchell educator, arranged the event on behalf of the Foundation.
The Glenview Giving Foundation has done fundraisers in the past, but this is its first fashion show. The foundation's founder, Chris Krueger, is a dentist in Glenview and "idea man" for the event. He asked Darlene Burnham of Andreas Hogue Salon for help while cleaning her teeth.
All the food, labor and space was donated for the event and all proceeds are going to charity. About 24 stylists were brought in to do hair and make-up for the models.
“Each and every month we do at least one event to support a local charity,” said Andreas Hogue, owner of Andreas Hogue Salon. “We love giving back to the community and especially love touching people through fashion and beauty.”
With 84 models involved in the event, ages ranging from 6 to 60, Andreas Hogue Salon hand-picked some of its very own clients who are making a difference in the community.
“We have Tanja Hamm, a local mother of four who recently beat breast cancer and inspires others everyday with her winning attitude,” said Ashley Hogue, co-owner of Andreas Hogue Salon. “Another one of our models is Dolly Cipolla who recently opened Glenview's Samadhi Yoga studio.”
“We love working with strong women who are really making an impact in our community and changing it for the better,” she added.
Area restaurants donated food for the dinner portion of the evening. Supporters included: Zapatista, Wildfire, Bravo!,Eggsperience, Via Gelato, Costco, Roti Mediterranean Grill, Starbucks, Ted's Montana Grill, SweetPea Cakes, Jameson's Char House, Noodles and Company, Hackneys, Jolane's Cafe and Marcello's.
