What: Latin Women's Initiative fashion show and luncheon kickoff.
Where: Amid the designer racks and jewelry displays at Tootsies.
The 411: Fashions by Robert Rodriguez, Alexis and the couture line of Cuban designer Rene Ruiz tempted more than 100 supporters of the non-profit as they geared up for the LWI's 12th annual fashion show and luncheon set for May 16. Thanks to Tootsies' role as luncheon fashion design sponsor (a first for LWI), Ruiz will be on hand to personally present his glamorous fashions. Front and center on this shopping evening were honorary luncheon chairs Lucinda Loya and Ericka Bagwell. Welcoming the throng was LWI president Rosi Hernandez. Terrie Turner was on hand to introduce her new jewelry line —Ziio — carried exclusively by Tootsies.
Who: Sipping slimritas, Titanium tequila and lighter libations were guests including Cyndy Garza Roberts, Gloria Nino, Jessica Rossman, Lisset Garza, Suzan Deison, Elva Flores, Gloria Bounds, Karen Love and Irma Diaz-Gonzalez.
