The Colleyville Woman’s Club invites you to its 34th annual Fashion Benefit Luncheon, Lunch with the Girlz, on Friday, April 12, 2019 at the Hurst Conference Center.

Four dazzling fashion designers will be featured: Bladi Duran, Neobantu, Nha Khanh, and Roopa. Accessory designers will also be showcased, including Opal Milk. In addition, there will be a crowd favorite section highlighting youth models and Nha Khanh’s new children’s line.

Inspired by the creativity of women, this year’s theme is The Art of Women.
In coordination with this, two items will be making their debut. Internationally acclaimed Cuban/American abstract expressionist, Rolando Diaz, will be creating an original oil on canvas at the event, which will be sold during the Live Auction. Plus a fun photo booth will be located in the lobby so attendees can craft their own creative pictures.
