Two weeks of runway fashion help feed the local hungry

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Anthony Simons is working hard to put on quite the show.

"It's a lot of last minute things, just all over the place that have to be done and all come together at one time," said Simons.

For the last four years the CEO of Plitzs Charlotte has brought designers from all over the world to wow the Queen City.

"Bringing that international aspect to it helps to infuse that excitement in the city and give them a sense of what's going on in the world of fashion," said Simons.

This year, fashion lovers can experience international fashion and support local designers.

But this runway show will do much more then reinvent your look.

It will help replenish the Second Harvest Food Bank's pantry through admission fees and silent auctions.

"It's a lot of good that's being done all the way around," said Simons. "The more that we can do in that area the more people that we can touch the better."

And your inner fashionista will help make sure no one is going to bed hungry.
