THE 2017 FASHION SHOW WAS A GREAT SUCCESS !
It was a perfect sunny day and 109 ladies came for a wonderful luncheon filled with surprises, fashions and fun !
The models wore beautiful clothes gleamed from our recent Bazaar and they looked stunning ! 10 historical ‘guests’ arrived in costume and it was great fun trying to identify them with only the clues that they would provide for us. The ‘special visitors’ were Queen Elizabeth, Rosie the Riveter, Billie Jean King, Betsy Ross, Minnie Pearl, Wallis Simpson, Phyllis Diller, Jackie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Iris Apfel!
Their vintage clothing was great and very well thought out. Thus the Theme of the Fashion Show, Glamour Without Gilt through the Decades was perfect.
Ten Runway Models did a wonderful job in picking out their clothes and looked very regal.
The Beautician who did the makeup for the models added a great deal of professionalism to our event !
The wardrobe mistresses did a great job in keeping the models organized and a fantastic job in bringing the items out for the successful bidders,
The tables were decorated to co-ordinate with the theme of the day and were a beautiful surprise .
There was a surprise model who ‘flew’ in to Palm Beach Shores to be with us especially for the fashion show and we were very fortunate to have ‘ her’ with us. So thank you T.R.M.
Our handsome escort did a great job in walking the models out to the stage, Thank you L.J.S,
Then lastly and certainly not least were the two gals who organized the entire day, Eileen Dawson and Judy Craddock, Many Many hours of work and thought went into this production and they are to congratulated.! It was a wonderful success. When we have the final figures on the success of the auction, raffle and Chinese auction we will let you know ! Stay tunned !
