Habitat for Humanity, Macy’s and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh have collaborated on a night of quirky couture for a good cause.


On Fri., May 31, Downtown’s Double Tree Hotel hosts the second annual Hard Hats & High Heels Fashion Show to benefit Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Build program.

Models will strut down the runway in outfits designed by students at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, getups assembled entirely from home-renovation items found at the Greater Pittsburgh Habitat ReStore. Above is a photo from last year's show, courtesy of Habitat.

Habitat families will also hit the runway decked out in collections from the Waterfront Macy’s store. Local celebs appearing include 96.1 KISS FM’s Tall Cathy, who will emcee the show, and dancers from the Lifetime show Dance Moms, who will perform.

General admission tickets are $25 and include access to the silent auction and complimentary crudités.

VIP tickets are $100. VIPs will be seated along the runway and can attend a pre-show cocktail party in a lounge with a cityscape view and live music. VIPs also receive free drink tickets, a selection of hors d'oeuvres and goodie bags stuffed with chocolates, gift cards and giveaways.

All tickets will be entered in a raffle to win two round-trip JetBlue tickets. Proceeds will go to the Veterans Build program, which aims to provide housing, volunteer and employment opportunities to U.S. veterans, military service members and their families.

The Double Tree is located at 1 Bigelow Square. For more information, call 412-351-0512, ext. 11 or see
