Greenville Museum of Art will host its second Fashion on Display fashion show featuring locally owned boutiques and stores tonight at 6 p.m.

Trista Reis Porter, executive director of the Greenville Museum of Art, said the event is a fashion show fundraiser that will display looks all for women with a focus primarily on fall looks. The fundraisers hosted by the museum helps to keep the doors free and open to the public.

“It’s all Greenville designers, there’s basically eight different vendors, and this year, we’ve got some of the clothing vendors are pairing up with jewelry vendors as well,” Porter said. “It’s kind of an opportunity not only to raise money for the museum, but also to showcase different boutiques and clothing vendors from the local community.”
