Local boutique C’est la Vie at The Landing will host their third annual fashion show to raise funds for the Domestic Abuse Women’s Network.

Doors open at 5 p.m., Sept. 26 for the 6 p.m. show, at 911 N. 10th Place, Renton. Tickets are $20.

Customers of the store will model the latest fall fashions.

“Real people with real, true, normal bodies,” said Colleen Bowman, store co-owner.

The evening will feature food and beverages provided by other vendors in The Landing, a raffle, door prizes and gift bags.

“Tons of vendors have donated very generously,” Bowman said. “Wild Fin, Vino, Gyro House, World of Beer, Mucho Burrito have donated all the food and all the beverages. We really couldn’t do it without them.”

An organic cotton San Francisco clothing vendor has also donated a jacket worth about $300 for a raffle prize.

One hundred percent of the ticket and raffle sales will go to DAWN and a portion of the store sales that night will go to the organization.

“Evening Magazine,” with host Meeghan Black will tape a show in C’est la Vie, which will air on Sept. 20.

Bowman encourages those interested to buy their tickets in advance because the show has a limited capacity for 200 attendees.

The following night, Sept. 27, Donna’s Haute Boutique will host a fashion industry networking mixer and community spotlight in Renton.

The event is 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., at St. Andrews Lodge, 505 S. Williams St., Renton.

A fashion show and vendors will be there to help “make a difference to women that are in need,” posted Donna Anderson, about the event. Hosts will collect new bras, panties and toiletries for “The Lady Day Drive,” which supports two non-profits: “Queen It’s a New Day” and “Dignity for Divas.”
