THERE could not be a more fashionable way to raise money for cancer research.

The catwalk will be lit up at De Ja Vu Hair, Nails and Beauty tonight as the Eastern Heights salon hosts an evening of high fashion and fundraising.

A charity fashion show will be held at the venue to generate funds for The Weekend to End Women's Cancers.

Models are set to strut down the runway in stunning collections presented by Lilee Fashion of Yamanto.

Beauty therapist at De Ja Vu Janice Freiberg said she had spent the past six weeks organising the event, with enthusiastic support from the community.

"In addition to the outfits supplied by Lilee Fashion, many businesses have provided us with great prizes for raffles," she said.

"We've got vouchers from Pancake Manor and Sizzlers, a booze basket from Caring Angles, Bed Head products and much more to give away."

Ms Freiberg said the event was put together to sponsor Matt Sharpe and Harry Van Hunnik, who were taking part in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers in October.

The Weekend will power life-saving cancer research programs and clinical trials with vital treatment care and survivorship programs for women's cancers in Queensland.

Both men, who work next door to De Ja Vu, will take part on a two-day, 60km trek for charity through Brisbane's suburbs.

The free fashion parade will take place tonight at De Ja Vu located at 84 Cemetery Rd, Eastern Heights, Ipswich from 6.30pm.
