Atlanta boutique chain Fab’rik hosted their Second Annual Charity Fashion show at the Summerour Studio event space. The Fab’rik White Collection was displayed on the runway, with local models flaunting the latest styles designed by Fab’rik owner Dana Spinola. The event was well-attended by the local community and Fab’rik fans. A fabulous silent auction awaited attendees as did a spread of appetizers and beverages sponsored by local businesses.

Spinola was supported by family and friends who showed up at the event as well as staff members from various Fab’rik outlets. Available for sale at the venue were select jewelry and outfits, with all proceeds going towards new efforts by Spinola to build their flagship free Fab’rik resale boutique in the Fall this year.

The non-profit shop will host free shopping sprees for those in need and provide working mentorships for young women coming from dire circumstances to build confidence, restore hope and discover their dreams. Spinola cites personal stories from the past year as her motivation for this new endeavor.
