Wind city: The Lilu Handbag Project stands out
7th Annual LiLu Benefit Fashion Show
It’s starting to feel like everywhere you turn, there’s a fashion show happening somewhere in Sacramento. So why should you pick the Lilu Handbag Project’s runway show out of the crowd? All the bags are one-of-a-kind, handmade by Mira Loma and McClatchy high-school students. Add the fact that many of the bags were sewn from vintage and donated fabrics (and secondhand fabrics are the height of green fashion). Most importantly, proceeds from the event benefit Wind Youth Services for homeless youths. Since the Lilu nonprofit was founded seven years ago by then high schoolers Libby ("Li") Abbott and Lucy ("Lu") Plumb-Reyes, it has raised over $35,000 for Wind. Several teens staying at the Wind shelter will make their runway debut as models for the handbags. $5 students; $10 adults. 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Wind Day Center, 701 Dixieanne Avenue; www.lilubags.com.
