Work the Metal, 1201 Story Ave, will host their third annual fashion show, featuring chic Derby flair with styles in apparel, the bling, elegant accessories, and more on April 12, 2019 from 6 to 9 p.m. (fashion show at 7).

Maybe you need to wet your whistle with all this excitement. How about an indulgent twist on the traditional Derby libation, a Chocolate Mint Julep made with Ballotin Chocolate Whiskey? The premium spirit maker will be offering samples (21 and older, please!) to sip as you shop.

Guests will be able to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and sweets from Butchertown, Germantown & Nulu by Scarlet’s Bakery, Crave Cafe Catering, Bourbon Barrel Food and Chocolate Mint Juleps from Ballotin Chocolate Whiskey.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Scarlet’s Bakery, a social enterprise non-profit whose chief mission is to employ, equip and empower women who have endured exploitation or abuse and are seeking a new start.
