Fashion with compassion
Once known as the 365 Club Benefit Luncheon and Fashion Show, StyleWorks has been sharing fashion with compassion since 1977. This unique two-day event brings the community and volunteers together to celebrate the work and passion of Siskin Children’s Institute . Our 2017 co-chairs, Jennifer Isaacson and Candace Chazen, teamed up to bring Chattanooga a tropical getaway inspired event like no other.
The event began with the StyleWorks Premiere, an evening out with friends complete with marketplace shopping featuring unique local and regional retailers, entertainment courtesy of EPB, cocktails, tropical themed decor and more. Incredible door prizes including a $500 credit towards special cruise experience from Expedia Cruise Center, a $500 Belk gift card among others were given away throughout the night. StyleWorks continued the next day with a luncheon and fashion show featuring professional models as well as current children and graduates of the Institute who previewed Belk’s trendiest clothing and accessories of the season for children and adults.
