Teen Challenge Emerge Fashion Event returns after its crowd pleasing debut in 2012. Hosted by Teen Challenge Queensland, Emerge will showcase the latest seasonal fashions as styled by designer and fashion expert Carolyn Taylor Smith. Professional models and new talent discovered in the Emerge Model Search, which took place on 3 August, will combine on the catwalk to give viewers a taste of the latest looks and hottest styles.

The event also includes a silent auction, with a chance to win a getaway package, and in true fashionista style, every attendee will receive a complimentary gift bag.
Emerge will take place on Saturday, 7 September, from 7pm at Grand Central Shopping Centre. Tickets are $59 each if purchased before 17 August and $69 afterwards – this includes an invitation to the post show soiree, where refreshments will be served. Tickets can be purchased online, from Grand Central Information Desk (cash only), or by phoning Teen Challenge on (07) 3422 1500.
Teen Challenge Emerge Fashion Event is an annual fundraiser that supports the New Life Women's Centre, a centre that provides support for young women recovering from substance addiction, eating disorders, depression, self-harm, homelessness, and other life-controlling issues. The Centre in Toowoomba is in high demand, as there are not enough beds for Queensland women requiring assistance, so Emerge gives patrons a fun opportunity to help New Life continue their work.
