Pin Up, Pin Down will be a knock out

Fashions inspired by the 1940s and 1950s but with a modern twist will roll into 10 Park Lanes on Nov. 11 for Pin Up, Pin Down, a runway show to benefit Levine Cancer Institute’s Carolinas Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

It starts at 6 p.m. at the bowling lanes on Montford Drive. At 8:15 p.m., models will turn the lanes into a runway as they show off clothes from area boutiques. There's also a silent auction with donations from Tiffany & Company and The Palm. 

Among the shops sharing their interpretation of the modern day pin-up girl are Blush, Blvd at Southend, Vivian B, Vestique, Summerbird, JT Posh, Sloan, Nordstrom and Solstice. Merritt Rea of FashionFrontRunner is in charge of the styling and production.

Tickets are $10; a VIP table is $200 and includes a bottle of Mo√ęt rose,  a gift bag and appetizers. Details:
