Tolga Sevdik to Chair Fashion Event for Partners For Quality

Partners For Quality Foundation is proud to present the 11th Annual Pittsburgh Fashion Story, an electrifying fashion show and cocktail party on Friday, September 5, 2014 in the Power Center Ballroom at Duquesne University.  Doors open at 7 pm. Tolga Sevdik, Honorary Chair and co-owner of Meat & Potatoes and Butcher in the Rye is pleased to chair the show. Paul Steigerwald will Emcee the show, Carol Shriber and Chuck Snyder, long- time supporters are Special Guests.

More than 350 guests will get an exclusive look at fall’s hottest trends from local boutiques Carabella, Dina Ellen, KRISTI Boutique, Charles Spiegel for Men, MODA and Roberta Weissburg Leathers.  Hair and makeup will be provided by Izzazu Salon, Spa & Serata.  Tori Mistick is back for her fifth year as the show’s Fashion Coordinator and – as always – brings her special touch to the show. “I’m looking forward to a dazzling fashion show with a backdrop of the Pittsburgh skyline. I can’t think of a better setting to bring together a selection of our city’s best locally owned stores to support this deserving cause,” says Mistick.

The show is the brainchild of co-chairmen John Lamberson and Douglas Tjelmeland who say, “the move to the Power Center Ballroom last year provided a beautiful view of the city for this premier fashion event.  Join us and you’ll see your favorite hallmarks of Pittsburgh Fashion Story – a top quality production and fabulous party.  The event sells out each year so we encourage Pittsburghers to get your tickets early.”  To purchase tickets or for more information, go to
