My town does an amateaur fashion weekend every summer, kind of like Fashion Week in New York City, only naturally it’s nowhere near so highend. Local girls volunteer to model dresses which are then sold for charity. We choose a different charity every year and this year we’re giving to a local daycare for disabled children. I’m so excited!
A couple of my friends and I are going to be modeling some vintage gowns from a little boutique in my town. The woman who runs the shop has been collecting 1930′s and 1940′s era dresses for years and she says that her storage room is too full to move in. We’re getting to wear some really gorgeous dresses. One of mine is this flouncy, scarlet number with rosebuds around the neckline.
All the girls are getting their hair and makeup done too. The show’s organizer has hired a bridal makeup artist Manchester who specializes in retro makeup especially for the day.
It’s going to be a fun day.
