New York Fashion Week may have just wrapped up, but that annual celebrity and media extravaganza will soon have nothing on Grayson County. The Leitchfield Womans club will host a fall fashion show with a twist—something stylish for literally everyone and all available locally. The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 24, starting at 2 p.m. at Head Start, 201 East Walnut St. in Leitchfield.
Real people—neighbors, family, and friends—will take the catwalk to show real fashions from Whoop-De-Do Designs, Something Beautiful, Cato, Factory Connection, with others soon to be announced. Designs to cheer on your favorite team or cause can be seen from Hibbett Sports, T-Shirt Express, and Woosley Outfitters, who can also take care of your feet with their variety of boots. No matter where your life may take you, chances are good you’ll find something to take you there in style.
“We want to show that ‘fashion” is for everyone, no matter their age, lifestyle, or size,” said Event Organizer Anne Gonzales, owner of Madison Square Boutique, which will also feature designs in the show.
In addition to the show, attendees can relax with refreshments, as they enjoy the soothing sounds of a string quartet from Grayson County High School’s orchestra program.
Guests will also be able to bid on a complete UK football package featuring two tickets to the Cats’ Nov. 21 game against Charlotte. The package includes a parking pass and also comes with gift cards to spend on gas or dining.
Tickets for the fashion show are just $10 and available from any Womans Club member. Proceeds from the event will allow the club to provide two new scholarships for local graduates. For many years, LWC has sponsored the Georgia Sisk Nursing Scholarship. According to Club President Mary Nell Bouvier, the new scholarships will be available for students pursuing any field.
Additional stores and details will continue to be released in the weeks leading up to the show. Visit Leitchfield Womans Club on Facebook to stay up to date on those and all the club’s community activities.
