Nearly 300 guests gathered at Diesel Club Lounge in South Side to support Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh at the Philip Pelusi Fashion Trend Runway Show. This is the seventh year Philip Pelusi has worked in collaboration with the organization. “Our fall fashion show is threefold,” explains Philip Pelusi Salons Marketing Manager Michele Pelusi. “It serves as our fall trend hair and makeup runway show for the Pittsburgh area and beyond; as an employee-centric event and annual party — hair and makeup models are prepared by designers from all 12 locations; and also as our annual fundraiser for Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh.” By night’s end, more than $10,000 was raised for breast cancer research! Hosted by Tall Cathy of 96.1 KISS and Sheri Van Dyke of 94.5 3WS, the evening featured food by Local Bar + Kitchen, hundreds of cupcakes by Tummy Treats, and specialty drinks by Clique Vodka. In addition, a raffle and silent auction took place alongside the show, which displayed the hair and makeup trends for the upcoming seasons as shown on 40 models. Guests had the opportunity to rock pink hair extensions and dance to the sounds of DJ B. Wood. An exclusive Pink After Party at Skybar closed the evening, which was certainly “a cut above the rest.”
