For the season premier of the television show Project Runway, the red carpet will be kicked out and Caviar & Bananas will be transformed into an upscale lounge on the eve of August 20th.

Why all the pomp for a TV show? Two of Charleston's designers star as contestants.

Here is what a press release had to say about the evening of food and fashion:


The event, which will benefit Lowcountry Aids Services, will kick off with a red carpet entry followed by a complimentary cocktail hour. Guests will have a chance to mingle to the tunes of Spaced Invaders and a chance to win stylish prizes and giveaways. Ayoka Lucas, Style Editor for Charleston Magazine will host the event making special announcements and providing inside information about the Emerging Design Competition. At 10pm guests will take their seats and watch the premiere of Project Runway featuring two of Charleston’s own designers: Gordana Gehlhausen and Carol Hannah Whitfield.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are for sale exclusively online for $20.
