    Koko &Palenki hosts a fashion show and shopping event in Dadeland Mall to benefit charity.

    It seems like all the cool fashion shows and shopping events these days are either in trendy South Beach or the Design District.

    But alas, this Saturday, stylish suburbanites in Kendall can get some catwalk action and do a little shopping afterward to benefit charity.

    Koko &Palenki Style in Dadeland Mall is hosting a fashion show and shopping event during which 10 percent of proceeds go to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

    The free event is from 1 p.m. till 4 p.m. and will feature all the hot autumn trends at the store.

    Models will be donning wears by local designers like Alexis, Karina Grimaldi and Ramona La Rue as well as labels like Elizabeth and James, Current Elliot and William Rast.

    All items featured in the show will be on sale and participants who make a purchase will receive a $25 gift card to use at the shop.

    The boutique will also be raffling off two $100 gift cards.

    Koko & Palenki Style opened up two years ago near Nordstrom and caters to women in their 20s up to their 50s.

    To attend the event, RSVP to 305.666.4447
