Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC) is hosting its signature, annual fashion show on Friday, March 31, 2023 at The Ritz Carlton, Sarasota. The 2023 event, SPARCC Runway: Timeless Treasures will be filled with nostalgia and fashion-forward styles as the organization showcases trends. As fashion fans know, trends tend to be cyclical, going in and out of style every few decades. Some trends that have come back into fashion in 2023 are — leather goods, clogs, all-things sheer, baggy slacks and jeans, sequins and sparkle, oversized blazers, feathered items and the color purple, which also happens to be the color for domestic violence awareness.

Guests will enjoy valet parking, a champagne toast, shopping in the event’s premiere, pop-up fashion boutique (featuring great deals on high-end fashion pieces as Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Lafayette 148, Missoni, St. John, Akris, Johnny Was, Escada, Coach, Anthropologie, Hugo Boss, Vince Camuto, Kate Spade, Ming Wang, BCBG Max Azria, Sam Edelman, 7 for for all mankind, Lilly Pulitzer, Johnston & Murphy, Jill McLaughlin, Carlisle, Etro, Banana Republic, Lululemon, and many more from SPARCC Treasure Chest), a delicious luncheon complete with wine service, and an unforgettable and fantastic runway fashion show. This year guests can also join in on our inaugural Fashion Show After-Party, and avoid the valet rush, with musical entertainment, for purchase beverage options and additional opportunities to shop the boutique. Registration and shopping begin at 10 AM, followed by the seated luncheon and fashion show at noon and the after-party immediately following. All festivities wrap-up by 2:30 PM. This year’s Fashion Show Chairs are: Vickie Smith, Event Chair; Darci Jacob, Fashion Chair; Coral Pleas (Cutting Loose Hair Salons) and Terry McKee (Nuovo Salon Group) as Honorary Chairs. As the owners of Sarasota’s most beloved hair salons the event’s Honorary Chairs are coming together to show their support of SPARCC, take a stand for survivors and help make Timeless Treasures an event to remember! All proceeds from the event support SPARCC’s free and confidential programs and services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. For tickets and sponsorship opportunities, visit www.sparcc.net/events or call 941-365-0208 ext. 110.

“SPARCC is incredibly grateful for the funds raised at our annual fashion show, and we are even more excited by the social awareness that is created when you gather over 500 in attendance,” said SPARCC President & CEO, Jessica Hays. “This fun event provides a great opportunity to share about the free and confidential programs and services SPARCC provides to survivors and their children, right here in our community.”
