Women swapped high heels for leather work boots. Men ditched their formal vests for neon construction vests. At the Hard Hat & Black Tie Gala, guests mixed formalwear with construction gear in support of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity. In addition to a traditional cocktail-and-appetizer reception and a dinner, there was a nontraditional fashion show of construction couture, all to help develop and build affordable housing in the Twin Cities.
