5th Annual HALO Youth Fashion Show

Career Workshops Benefiting at-risk youth in Kansas City

Kansas City, Mo. – The HALO Foundation presents the 5th Annual Youth Fashion Show on Thursday, August 6, 2015, 6:00 -9:00 p.m., at Terrace on Grand, 1520 Grand Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64108.


Throughout the Summer, HALO youth participate in a variety of workshops that teach career- based skills for the Fashion Show. Workshops held by students from Paul Mitchell the School of Overland Park teach Cosmetology and focus on inner beauty and confidence building. One of the youth’s favorite aspects of preparing for the Show is getting to work with a local celebrity and designer Whitney Manney. Manney leads Fashion Design workshops teaching the basics of sewing and the creative process of fashion design. The event’s Runway MC, Miss Missouri Teen Christina Stratton will introduce youth and their designs as they walk down the runway at the Fashion Show. Throughout these workshops and the Show, youth learn applicable skills for their lives and careers, learn to express themselves creatively, and gain priceless self-confidence. In addition, a silent auction of local Kansas City premiere items are available to bid.

“The Fashion Show really is such a magical night for our youth and guests,” said HALO Learning Center Director Carly Manijak. “During the Summer, youth explore their creativity, take part in educational workshops, and work with design professionals to create their runway outfits. They experience what it is like to work hard on something and show off their work. You see their self- confidence grow and the youth begin to realize their hopes and dreams can become a reality.”

Ticket prices are $30, with the option to support a youth’s outfit, for an additional $20.
