A high-end fashion fundraiser is being held at the Main Street Arena Thursday, May 10, 2012.

The ice rink will be transformed into a runway for the Art in Heels event. Art in Heels is a benefit to help the University of Virginia Art Museum and local public television.

Top celebrity designers like Johnathan Kayne and Heidi Elnora from the show Project Runway will showcase their collections.

“It will not look like an ice arena. We’ll have a large 70 foot runway down the middle of the ice rink, there will be a lot of surprises from the local sponsors that will come in, so you will not feel like you’re in a an ice rink at all. It will be other-worldly,” said Anna von Gehr of the University of Virginia Art Museum.

Tickets for the high fashion event will cost between $125 to $5,000. Tickets for the after party are $40 in advance and $45 at the door.
