SAVANNAH — Savannah Fashion Week, an extravaganza organized by independent boutiques, will host a series of events April 22-24, culminating with a premier runway show on April 25.

Part of the proceeds from tickets will benefit Union Mission’s Magdalene Project, which houses homeless women and children.

Each boutique will host a series of events during the week leading up to the fourth annual runway show at 7:30 p.m. at the Lucas Theater, at 32 Abercorn St. In addition, a special designer showcase featuring Mangled Courtesan, Brooke Atwood, Mamie Ruth and others will take place on at 7:30 p.m. April 26 at Dollhouse Productions, 980 Industry Dr., to conclude the 2013 SFW.

“Savannah Fashion Week offers the perfect opportunity for fashion enthusiasts to connect directly with designer boutiques right in their own backyard,” said Tara Kirkland, owner of Custard Boutique and president of Savannah Fashion Week. “This event is the culmination of a collective vision to highlight attainable fashion trends, including the latest spring arrivals. Attendees can expect to see Savannah style at its best.”

Participating boutiques include Bleu Belle Boutique, Custard Boutique, Fabrika Fine Fabrics, J. Paige, Palm Avenue, Red Clover, Sara Jane Children’s Boutique, Satchel, Terra Cotta, Trunk 13 Boutique and Zia Boutique. In addition, SFW is accepting donations for the Magdalene Project at all participating stores; especially new toiletries, diapers, new pillows, new linens (full size), new towels and new makeup.

Advanced runway show tickets are on sale at www.savannahfashionweek.org or by calling (912) 525-5050. Tickets will also be available at the Lucas on April 25, if available. Tickets are $30 for Tier 1 seating, $40 for Tier 2 and $55 for Tier 3.
