Step into Fashion with Second Step Housing

§ July 26th, 2011 § Filed under Events § Tagged , , , , , , , § No Comments

Imagine a dark room, then the lights go up and you see a runway stage, hear the thumping of some modern music, and out come professional models, along with Mayors Tim Leavitt and Mike Ciraulo strutting down the runway in some contemporary fashions.

That’s what awaits you at this year’s Step into Fashion runway show, dinner and silent auction Sept. 7, 2011 at the downtown Vancouver Hilton, sponsored by Walsh Construction Co. and Fazzolari Custom Homes & Renovations.

Feeling Confident is Important to Our Residents’ Success

At Second Step Housing, we wanted this event to be something different. More importantly, we wanted to focus on an aspect of the development of our clients: looking good to gain confidence and credibility.

At Second Step Housing, we have worked for more than 15 years to help end homelessness. We reunite families who have been torn apart by addiction or domestic violence by providing them safe, affordable housing and then, through case management and support services, help them meet their goals.

One of the life skills we teach our residents is how to dress for success. You’d be surprised at how difficult it can be for some women to even envision themselves in a trendy outfit with a modern hairstyle. It is in that spirit that we are offering professional makeovers to two of our residents who will be selected from a pool of applicants.


The runway show will feature attire by local Camas boutique Lily Atelier and Agave Denim. Lily’s will also be donating clothes to our makeover winners. Hair is courtesy of Park West Studio. Models are provided by Sports & Lifestyle Unlimited.
