Local designers will share their latest pieces to benefit charity during the Couture for a Cause Happily Ever After fashion show Saturday at Peachy Keen boutique in Cary. The show features new collections from local designers Tiffany Saini and Nicky Relyea, who won the Couture for a Cause fashion show competition last fall.

The show benefits Activate Good, a local nonprofit that matches volunteers with area charities. Proceeds will support the organization’s volunteer match program, along with its day of service initiative and Activate Schools program, which teaches teens the value of volunteerism.

The event will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. and includes a silent auction, as well as wine and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are $15 and must be purchased in advance at happilyeverafter2014.eventbrite.com.

Bridal trunk show

New bridal gowns from the Soft Collection by Rosa Clara will be at Traditions by Anna bridal boutique in Raleigh for a trunk show Friday and Saturday. The line features sheath and flowing gowns ideal for destination weddings, priced from $1,600 to $3,000. To reserve an appointment, call 919-783-8652.
