Now in its seventh year, The Elisa Project’s ESTEEM: A Fashion Show returns to Dallas next Saturday, Sept. 17. Aimed at celebrating positive body image and self-esteem, the annual event and fashion show features local celebrities as they join girls, women and men of all ages to encourage embracing a healthy, balanced lifestyle and self-acceptance.
At DFW Style Daily, we love supporting great causes and ESTEEM is something we look forward to year after year. Encouraging people to love themselves while striving to be healthy, the annual event also increases awareness about eating disorders. This year’s event will kick off at Tootsie’s (Preston Center Plaza) on Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. with mimosas and light bites with the fashion show starting promptly at 11 a.m. This year’s ESTEEM Co-Chairs Melissa Rountree and daughter Morgan are joined by Honorary Chair Lynne McBee. Like last year, Gloria Campos is set to emcee the show, which is sure to be another fabulous production by Rhonda Sargent Chambers’ RSC Show Productions.
“The Elisa Project’s mission and purpose have always hit my heart strongly,” Rhonda told us. “We need to support those with eating disorders by helping young men and women, early on in life, understand healthy body image. The Elisa Project mission is to increase awareness in schools through our programming efforts at the elementary level and up, providing resources for everyone to receive proper medical attention and assistance.”
Tickets to the ESTEEM Fashion show are currently on sale and will be available at the door at the event. For more information, click here.
