Fashion-forward friends of the Elisa Project gathered at Dallas boutique Tootsies to watch the fourth annual Esteem Fashion Show showcasing the latest fall trends.

Store manager Nerissa von Helpenstill led the audience through the looks, as models — including Yvonne Crum, Courtney Kerr, LeeAnne Locken, Lisa Petty, Cynthia Smoot and Amy Vanderoef — strutted their stuff, showing off a variety of fashions. 
 
Debbie Denmon served as celebrity hostess while event founder Rhonda Sargent Chambers was at it again, having produced all four Esteem shows with her company, RSC Show Productions. Co-chairmen Pam Skaggs Frank and daughter Bridget Frank worked closely with a host committee to sell out the fashion show and raised more than $10,000 for the Elisa Project, which is dedicated to the prevention and effective treatment of eating disorders.
 
But it was Dr. Stephanie Setliff who reminded guests of their purpose in attending this fashionably fun affair. She explained that eating disorders are not selective in their victims and that these diseases can strike at any time. All proceeds raised at the Esteem Fashion Show fund programming needs for the Elisa Project.
