San Antonio was trendy for a cause yet again this fall, for the seventh annual “Ranch Chic Fashion Show” at iDanceCity in the Eilan Center. With a backdrop as fabulous as the Eilan Hotel, it is no surprise that event producer and this magazine’s resident style maven Erin Busbee (of coordinated a wildly successful and fashionable fundraiser. From exotic furs to flirty frocks, San Antonio’s finest western wear from Ranch at the Rim boutique was on display at this exciting event, which raised more than $30,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Some inspiring faces who hit the catwalk for the cause were many local cancer survivors, including former San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros. Several on-air personalities from KENS 5 TV also modeled in the show and the station’s morning meteorologist Paul Mireles served as the MC for the event.
