Friends of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville answered that question Sunday evening at Dillard's at the Mall at Green Hills, during "Couture Construction," a fundraiser to raise dollars necessary to build a Habitat home for Women Build 2013 partner family Ebony Kelly.
Wardrobe and cosmetic stylists offered free consultations along with an evening of cocktails, shopping, and networking.
Tickets were priced at $50, which will go toward the construction costs of Kelly's Habitat home.
Dillard's is also donated 10% of sales from the evening's event.
Guests of honor were Ebony Kelly and Habitat Women Build 2011 partner family, Shandora Fennessee.
Models showcasing the latest in fashion trends also be mingled with the shoppers.
Kelly has completed nearly 100 hours of education classes and will work on the build site, along with members of the Women Build committee and other community volunteers to build her home this spring.
Kelly is employed by Walgreens and has two children. Her road to Habitat came from a desire to "make things happen and take responsibility."
Construction on Kelly's home will begin Saturday, April 13 and run four consecutive weekends, through Sunday, May 5.
Habitat will build the home in Park Preserve in north Nashville, a community which features neighborhood parks and a rain garden.
The event was presented by Dillard's and sponsored by UPS, Morgan Stanly; Bass, Berry & Sims; Emdeon; Lowe's; and BACAR Constructors.
Dillard's and Firestone contributed door prizes to the event.
