WRIP stands for Women Renewed in Power Resource Center. The WRIP works to help women who have been hurt by domestic violence, homelessness or other life situations. WRIP believes in "Education, Empowerment and Embracing women through caring and supportive measures."
WRIP recently had their 2nd annual fashion showcase at the Dearborn Performing Arts Center. The goal of the evening was to present fashions, but to also make the public aware of the center and to let these strong women who have benefited from WRIP's resources a chance to let their hair down and strut their stuff on the runway.
Fashions included daytime, evening and even a fur segment presented by Silver Fox Furs of Detroit
The fashions were provided by local designers. In some aspects the designers met directly with a client of WRIP and then created a design specifically for that individual to wear on the runway.
