West Seattle Fashion Show (and fundraiser) in the works!

Thanks to everyone who sends in event announcements – their main home on WSB is the West Seattle-wide Events calendar (with listings now stretching on into fall), but as often and possible, when something unusual comes in, we do our best to mention it here too, like this: Here’s an announcement just received for the West Seattle Fashion Show, less than two weeks away:

The historic Sanctuary at Admiral (2656 42nd Avenue SW) will be the
venue for the upcoming West Seattle Fashion Show on Sunday, March 8,
2009 from 2 pm to 5 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

Admission for this teens-and-older event is $10 plus a donation of
canned or packaged food. Portions of the proceeds and the donated
food will be given to the West Seattle Food Bank. Helping neighbors
during the local economic downturn is the impetus for the fundraising
and the fashion show focus adds a fun element for the attendees.

The event sponsors are West Seattle businesses – Designer Labels
Consignment Boutique, the Sanctuary at Admiral, Clementine (shoe
shop), Elliot Hair Salon, Small Clothes (kids re-sale, Coffee to a Tea
w/ Sugar and Herban Feast Catering.

Clothing for the fashion show will be provided by Designer Labels and
available for purchase. Other shop sponsors will have merchandise for
sale as well.

    Hello! Do you know who I could contact to contribute in some way or be a co-sponsor in this event? I am a skin care and cosmetics consultant and would love to provide samples and/or application services for the fashion show models. What a wonderful idea! Thanks so much… :)

    I have a 9 year old boy that is mature and poised and also absolutely obsessed with fashion (has subscription to Vogue and Bazaar)- will they not allow him to attend…

    How is one permitted to participate? I am an Admiral resident who works from home in the jewelry/fashion industry.
    Thank you.

    What a great idea! We all need to remember to shop locally and recycle when possible. This event will help us do both! Not too mention helping our own WS Foodbank. Thanks so much to the people who put this on. We need more community events like this!

    Thank you for your interest. We kept the sponsors too just a few, being this is our first event.

    To mom3westseattle: your son may attend. Of course we would not turn a young person away whom has dreams!

    Thanks again for the great feed back and support West Seattle!

Sorry, comment time is over.
