This was a fashion party with a purpose when blogger and cancer survivor Megan Silianoff joined Tootsies for an evening in recognition of National Cancer Awareness Month.

There were many working parts to the event that served to introduce the Susan Scarf, designed by Manoosh in collaboration with the Susan Poorman Blackie Ovarian Cancer Foundation (SPB Foundation). Blackie lost her battle with ovarian cancer but not before creating the foundation and making beautiful silk scarves (to cover her hair loss) as her fashion signature.

The Susan Scarf is designed in teal blue, the national ovarian cancer color, and all sales of the scarf benefit the foundation. Tootsies kicked in 20 percent of sales on this evening for the foundation as well. During the event, Manoosh introduced its fall collection of dreamy, beautifully colored scarves which were snatched up by eager shoppers.

Artist Marilyn Biles, who founded Manoosh with her daughter, Nancy Guthrie, and Guthrie's daughter-in-law, Anna Wilson, was in the mix.

Silianoff, diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 30, signed copies of her book 99 Problems but a Baby Ain't One, while local fashion illustrator, Rongrong DeVoe, live sketched guests with their scarves. 

In addition popular jewelry designer Kathy Bracewell of Agate Ranch + Marfa created a “build your own” agate jewelry station where shoppers could add teal pieces to create one-of-a-kind necklaces.

Among those modeling their new scarves were Sandra Malta, Mary Wakefield, Candace Thomas, Jared Burgess, Ana LaValle, Kara Smith, Gabrielle Sauls, Jailyn Marcel, Julie Weinstein, Candace Thomas and Lauren Mills.
