New York Times bestselling author Nigel Barker, two-time finalist and All-Star of America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) Dominique Reighard, and the first ANTM male winner, Keith Carlos, united to support In Christy’s Shoes 7th Annual Sole Celebration on May 14 in Columbus, OH.
The night featured a fashion show with the latest trends in footwear from DSW and apparel styles by Express, as well as a silent auction highlighting autographed celebrity shoes. The added participation from the ANTM celebrities helped make the Sole Celebration a must-attend event. As a committee member, Dominique Reighard contributed on and off stage as well as by inviting her friends Barker and Carlos to attend the event. Dominique developed the fashion show by helping with the selection of the models and styles featured on the runway; Nigel Barker signed copies of his latest book Models of Influence; and all three alumni offered their expert coaching to the participating models in addition to mixing and mingling with guests throughout the night.
“The show could not have gone any better and it was great to have ‘three generations’ of Top Models show up to support such a great cause,” Reighard said. “But what is really important is that we got the message out there. In Christy’s Shoes strives to show women that they can face anything with confidence and be strong and powerful. It’s easy to tell someone to ‘stand tall,’ but that confidence has to come from a place of self-love and compassion. We have to inspire them to find that light inside of themselves to face the next challenge.”
In Christy’s Shoes celebrates the life of Christy Levy Peters who lost her battle with terminal brain cancer at the age of 34. The organization’s mission is to inspire women in challenging circumstances to walk in their shoes with confidence, strength and stability. In Christy’s Shoes accomplishes this by supporting women on their journey of personal growth through collaborating with non-profit partners that support and lift up women in challenging circumstances including Amethyst, Dress for Success Columbus and Zusman Hospice at Wexner Heritage Village.
“We’re beyond grateful that Dominique, Nigel and Keith were willing to lend their support to the cause, help get our message out and make this truly a memorable event for all involved,” said Christy’s twin sister and In Christy’s Shoes Founder, Katrina Levy Zidel.
