Columbia, S.C. -- Local Midlands professionals hit the runway at the Richland County Public Library Saturday afternoon.

It was the "Finding Your Voice" Fashion Show and Midlands residents got the opportunity to see up close and personal how to dress for success.

From USC professors to local businessmen/women, professionals dunned their most professional, yet stylish attire in various styles and patterns as the audience looked on and took note. The event was free of charge and open to the public.

Following the event, every participant in the audience got to put together and take home their own professional outfit for free out of available clothes, shoes, purses and accessories provided by the library.

Two lucky raffle winners also took home $100 in prize money.

Organizers of the event say it was a fun but informative way to give tools to the public that they could utilize in their respective careers.

"We wanted to develop a concept that would teach people how to dress appropriately for the workforce," said Randy Heath, project manager for the event. "And so, instead of doing a PowerPoint presentation where...you know, with visuals on how you should dress or how you shouldn't dress, we decided to teach that through the format of a fashion show. And so, we've gotten people from the community, sponsors and a great team of folk who brought this project to life."

The fashion show lasted from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m.
