KALAMAZOO--VIP tickets are on sale until Monday, Oct. 22, for Western Michigan University's fall fashion show, with canned food donations this year benefiting a local food bank.

"Luxe," a runway fashion show, is sponsored by the Merchandising Opportunities Design Association, a registered student organization at WMU. It will feature more than 20 WMU student designers, local boutiques and other local talents in makeup, hair, modeling and music. Shows will be held Friday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 10, at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the Cityscape banquet hall above the Union Cabaret and Grille in downtown Kalamazoo.

General admission tickets are $10 each and will be sold at the door if available. Seating is limited, and attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time. VIP tickets are on sale for $20 for the Saturday afternoon show and $30 for the evening shows and include a cash bar, reserved seating and a special gift from MODA. VIP tickets for both evening shows also include complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Attendees are asked to bring canned food donations to benefit Loaves and Fishes, a non-profit agency that supplies emergency food to Kalamazoo County soup kitchens and other programs.
