A Fashion Show of vintage styles filled our newly renovated – but none-the-less vintage, Community Room on Mother’s Day. Several Mothers and daughters (and some sons) celebrated either on the runway or in the audience.
Guests were treated to delicious, homemade cakes provided by volunteers. Two flavors of tea came from Verdigris Hudson and tables were decorated with flowering plants provided by Cedar Farm Wholesale. The flowers were given away to all the Moms in the audience at the conclusion of the event.
Behind the scenes, Marlene Marshall, owner of Discipline Park, a vintage clothing store on the corner of Fifth and State Streets, selected garments for each of the more than 20 models. On the runway, several of the women participating took great pride in adding their own touches to make the outfits more personal, and the audience gave each ensemble a hardy round of applause.
Also backstage were contributing make-up artists from FACE Stockholm. They styled the models according to their outfits and also provided discount coupons to all who attended. Music was mixed by Hudson’s own Young Paris.
Also local were the models – among others: girls and their moms from our upstairs neighbor, Perfect Ten. Paula Forman, founder of the group, and Artistic advisor, Pamela Badila also participated.
It was a festive Sunday afternoon with everyone enjoying the event. THANKS to all who helped make the show possible.
