Fashion Show & Gala to Benefit NoVa Autism Society

The Autism Society of Northern Virginia will hold its fourth Arts for Autism gala and fashion show this Saturday, Feb. 1, at The Tower Club Tysons Corner. Arts for Autism benefits ASNV’s mission to support local families who have been touched by autism. 

The event enlists model-fundraisers from the local fashion community and educational institutions to post their pictures on the Arts for Autism website prior to the gala and promote it to friends and family seeking donations and support. The model-fundraisers then get to walk the runway at the gala wearing fine apparel provided by local designers and retailers. Those walking the runway include current and aspiring models, and area students earning community service and classroom credit.

The gala reception features an art show and a series of brief performances and remarks by people in the autism community and local elected officials, followed by a fashion show.
