Fashion designer Cibeline Sariano, owner of the now-closed Beacon Hill boutique that bore her first name, hosts a trunk show at The Liberty Hotel on Thursday to launch a new collection of more than 100 customizable original patterns and designs (including the reversible wrap dress styles pictured). Items from her previous collections will be sold for steeply discounted prices (dresses, jackets, pants, and skirts all for $100; tops $20-$60). You’ll also be able to shop jewelry from Rivka Friedman and eco-friendly leather handbags from Paperthinks, and get hair and makeup consultations from stylist Andrea La Rosa. There will also be raffles benefiting The One Fund Boston. The event happens from noon to 9 p.m. at the Ebersol Suite (16th floor) of The Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles St., Boston, (617) 224-4000.
