Fashion Gives Back

Lauren Monroe is the mastermind behind Fashion Gives Back – a fashion show fueled by women helping women who understand the struggles and loss sometimes involved with motherhood. "I love fashion, but I love empowering women even more,” says Monroe, owner of Mimosa Boutique. And with her own personal experiences guiding her along the way, Lauren has created an event that has grown over the years and helped many in need. "Through personal experiences I know that the journey to motherhood can be a difficult one,” she says. "I wanted to do something to give back to the community and let families know that they are not alone.”

Fashion Gives Back is a fundraiser for a cause close to many women’s hearts – Hand to Hold. Their mission is to provide support and resources to parents and families of preemies, babies born with special health needs, and pregnancy loss due to complications. For a mother experiencing any of these issues, Hand to Hold is there to support her. Beyond sharing information and resources, Hand to Hold offers a peer support system so people can connect with others who have been through or are going through the same thing. Having the support of someone who understands is what makes this cause such a special one. Now that they are getting involved in Lake Charles hospitals, it is a great time to come out and support the women who help the community grow.

On the runway, you can expect to catch a glimpse into some fall trends for this year; from menswear to athleisure, along with some 70s-inspired looks. You can definitely count on a few overalls and jumpsuits to hit the runway, and we can’t forget those jaw-dropping jewel tones! All the looks will be modeled by Mimosa Boutique customers. This means you’ll get to see some familiar faces from the Lake Charles community express their strength and power. 

Celebrating its fourth year, Fashion Gives Back is again being held at Burton Coliseum. After moving the event to the Coliseum last year, they were able to hold 900 attendees and expect the same for this year. It’s time to get ready for this wonderful event that not only supports a meaningful cause, but also gives the amazing women of Lake Charles a chance to shine! 

Fashion Gives Back will take place September 27th. For more information, visit or on Facebook.
