The Birmingham Alumnae Chapter of Delta Zeta sorority will host its second annual “Make Some Noise!” Game Day Fashion Show, Luncheon and Silent Auction Aug. 23 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Iron City Grill.
Tickets will be $45 at the door.

Proceeds will support the Alabama School for Hearing’s preschool program headquartered at Canterbury United Methodist Church in Mountain Brook. The program prepares children with hearing loss to succeed in mainstream kindergarten classrooms.
Delta Zeta’s national philanthropic focus is speech and hearing. Local collegiate and alumnae chapters support programs such as the Alabama Ear Institute in their communities.
Coordinated by style coach and expert Megan LaRussa Chenoweth of Southern Femme, the fashion show will include clothing for women and children from local retailers Belk and Theadora and accessories from Stella and Dot by Ashley Stork.
The lineup includes on-trend attire for stylish fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, UAB Blazers and Birmingham-Southern College Panthers plus outfits suitable for any fall sporting event.
“Whatever your style may be, I think the goal of dressing for game day is to support your team without going overboard with prints, logos and tomboy sweatshirts,” Chenoweth said. “With so many of our teams playing on national television and playing opponents from outside the South, dressing well for the game is a great way to represent Alabama, regardless of which team you’re rooting for.”
Chenoweth said the fashion scene this fall will be a “texture frenzy.”
“Leather, knits and other rich fabrics are sure to keep you cozy and current. Top off your game day look with dripping metallic accessories,” she said.
SEC fans know fall doesn’t always bring cooler temperatures, especially for early-season games.
“When the weather is still blazing hot, stay cool and current in a breezy dress in your team’s colors,” Chenoweth said. “Let your accessories be the finishing touches that take your look from fine to fabulous.”
While it’s a tradition among some fans to dress up for Alabama games, Auburn fans are often more casual, she said.
“When done right, denim on denim can lend a stylish and casual game day look,” Chenoweth said. “The key to pulling off this look is to make sure the two denim items are different shades of blue and are broken up with a pop of color.”
