TKA’s Fashion Show Fundraiser A Big Hit

The King’s Academy recently held its annual fashion show fundraiser with a new look and feel, “Project Runway by TKA.”

The event was a spectacular undertaking with all the glitz and glamor of a New York City fashion show, complete with themed catwalks: Living on a Whim, Once in a Blue Moon, Tough Love, Go Bold or Go Home, Once Upon a Dress, and Ready, Set, Sunshine.

The Palm Beach event was a huge success, raising more than $20,000 for TKA’s annual fund. All in attendance enjoyed the student models, specialty vendors and the lovely waterfront view. Miss Florida 2012 Karina Brez made a special appearance and spoke briefly about inner beauty and confidence, before she introduced the show.

TKA thanks Alnifa Hackney, creative fashion designer, and the Raese family, who underwrote the event, as well as creative assistant Andrea Titus and vendor coordinator Teddy Walker.
