Fashion. Health. Beauty.

It’s just too much for one girls’ night.

That’s why the Fashion Happy Conference on Saturday invites women to an entire day of pampering. With more than 40 vendors, 15 classes, a spa area, lunch buffet and fashion show featuring Green Valley designer Ruby Sanders, the day promises glam and guidance. Many of the classroom presenters have roots in Tucson, sharing with participants how to defy aging, manage finances and look good on the go, among other class subjects.

“This is for the businesswoman or the stay-at-home mom,” says event organizer Olivia Gutzman, who hopes moms and daughters will share the day. Gutzman owns Fashion Happy Consulting.

Last year’s first Fashion Happy Conference attracted about 150 people. Gutzman hopes to double that this year.
