Get ready to dress up and rock out this weekend Indy. Roqstar Boutique is hosting an Awareness Anniversary Fashion Show Saturday, June 23 at 5 p.m. The trendy boutique is celebrating its one year anniversary in style, and you’re invited. Plus, it’s free! The neat part is the shop has partnered with the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) to also bring health awareness to the community. Did I mention that music will be provided by So7 and DJ Marcus Wain?! This will be a fabulous time you don’t want to miss.
“My husband is really the innovator of this event,” says Raque Jones, owner of Roqstar Boutique and designer of Roqstar Couture. “He matched this event to do exactly what Roqstar does everyday—bring some of the most unique items from designers nationally and locally.”
There will be about 10 vendors at the event including NKF. This national organization holds a special place in Jones heart.
“Healthy eating and exercising is important. I have a loved one experiencing kidney issues and I want to prevent anyone else from having to go through that. This is my opportunity to make a difference,” she said.
The vendor showcase starts at 5 p.m., which is located in the overflow parking lot south of the boutique. At 7 p.m. the fashion show will begin. There will be a 70 ft runway for your viewing pleasure as well. The show will be hosted by Indy’s own, Joni Michels, an anchor at Channel 6 News.
If that isn’t enough, the after party will continue at Buda Lounge, 148 E. Market St., at 10 p.m. There is a red carpet so come ready to be photographed. The party is free as well.
“This will be a lovely, fun family atmosphere that will excite all of your senses. My customers are now known as my friends,” Jones said. “I want to show my friends my appreciation for blessing my family and I. They bring me so much joy. God has blessed me in so many ways.”
Roqstar Boutique is located at 7255 North Keystone Avenue. For more information call 317-603-8299.
