Sacramento’s Handle District hosted it’s fourth annual Dress Up Wine Down event on Capitol Avenue. The annual fashion and wine event that brings together the Lodi Winegrape Commission (LOCA) and Sacramento Fashion Week (SACFW). This year’s event raised just under $5k for Women Escaping A Violent Environment (WEAVE).
The outdoor event held on second Saturday, May 12th, took over Capitol Avenue between 19th and 18th streets with more than a dozen wineries from one of the world’s fastest-growing wine regions provided through the Lodi Winegrape Commission.
Duane Ram the founder and producer of Sacramento Fashion Week oversaw the fashion show presentation and says this is one of the fun shows he enjoys doing. “Compared to SACFW this event is not as stressful. Granted I have less to oversee, but we did cast over 30 models for the show which is more then what we had last year.”
