What: The Spring Branch Education Foundation fourth annual "A Legacy of Fashion" luncheon.

Where: Hilton Post Oak.

The 411: In from her home base in California, designer Trina Turk lit up the catwalk with her Winter Luxe Collection for the luncheon chaired by Debbie Slack and Susan Griffin.

This was no ordinary fashion show luncheon as DJU Productions transformed the hotel ballroom into a winter wonderland-themed nightclub complete with falling "snow," swirling lights and rocking tunes. Spring Branch Education Foundation supporters, representing eight schools, served as models for clothing from the designer's new boutique in the Galleria.

Who: Models included KTRK's Katherine Whaley, Missy Balleza, Patty Busmire, Laruen Foster, Andria Francis, Anne Hachtman, Jacqueline Murchison, Valerie Villarreal and Lindsey Wohlford.
