LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Torrid's 2009 House of Dreams Runway Event on September 24th was a smashing success for the retailer known as the destination for young women's plus-size fashion. Celebrity guests, industry tastemakers and Torrid fans packed the courtyard at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM)--home of this season's Project Runway--to celebrate fashion, honor people who work to motivate women and to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). With an opening performance by Brooke Hogan and a grand finale performance by up-and-coming singer and musician Priscilla Renea, it was an amazing, star-studded evening of fierce fashion and entertainment.

Chosen from thousands of entries, the seven gorgeous winners of Torrid's 2009 House of Dreams model search rocked the runway in cutting edge apparel and accessories by Torrid, and in couture gowns created by FIDM students.
