Jinny will host a trunk show Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. with Althea Harper, an Ohio native and Project Runway Season 6 finalist.

The boutique event offers a peek into Harper's new fall runway collection and the chance to hear the designer discuss what inspires her creations. Guests are invited to sip champagne and sample desserts from Pistachia Vera, and can enter to win a raffle for Harper's limited-edition designs.

Harper debuted her own, self-titled line during New York Fashion Week in September 2009. Her style combines both tailoring and draping, and reflects her work alongside renowned designers such as Anna Sui, Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.

Jinny is located at 844 N. High Street in the Short North.
