A-Line Style Services founder Tamika Martell created her wardrobe consulting and personal shopping business in 2008 to help guide Chicago professionals to look and feel their best. Her company specializes in styling curvaceous and plus-sized women, a market she feels is often overlooked. Martell will host the "Dangerous Curves Ahead" charity fashion show on Saturday, April 25 to showcase style in all shapes and sizes.
The "Dangerous Curves Ahead" fashion show and women's expo will take place from 7-10PM at the Zhou B Art Center (1029 W. 35th St.) on Chicago's near South Side. The multi-faceted event will present an all-sizes fashion show, along with discounted clothing, accessories and beauty products and complimentary services from more than 20 Chicago and national vendors, such as event partner PZI Jeans. The first 500 guests will receive a gift bag with more than $100 in goodies.
The event will also showcase entertainment from Chicago comedian Meechie Hall and music from V-103 DJ Sundance, along with complimentary food and cocktails. Proceeds from the event will benefit 2nd Chance Chicago, a nonprofit organization helping homeless women and children.
Tickets for "Dangerous Curves Ahead" are $20 in advance (including private parking) and $25 at the door. Tickets can also be purchased in advance at the 2nd Chance Resale Boutique (6607 S. King Dr.).
