Designer Barbara Bates believes that every woman is entitled to wear beautifully tailored fashion no matter their age or size. That is the premise behind the Annual “Real Women Wear Bates” fashion show on October 26. The women strutting the catwalk will be career women, housewives, retirees and a few recognizable faces. Special invited host for the event is comedian Sinbad. The show will be at Venue West, 221 N. Paulina Street. Champagne reception is from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.; Fashion show begins at 5:30 p.m.
