HARTFORD - The Greater Hartford Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary Annual
Dinner and Fashion Show was held at the Pond House in West Hartford on
September 29th. A large crowd of Fashionesta's attended the late afternoon
event and went home as a group of very "happy shoppers!"
What's hot in the fashion world this season? If you were in attendance
attended . . . you would know. The September issues of Vogue, InStyle, and Elle
magazine are touting Fall Fashions that include capes, cardigans, shearling,
suede, corduroy trousers, faux leather, faux fur, pencil skirts and minimalist
dresses. And we had them all!
Emma Asante, Community Projects Director for NBC 30, served as the Fashion
Commentator. As the models strutted down the runway, Emma read the scripts
impeccably and everyone listened intently to the names of the big fashion
designers and the descriptions of the models' outfits.
Jeanne Mucci, show coordinator said, "With the wonderful selection of
consignment clothing for sale, many of the ladies went home with some great
fashion finds at real bargain prices. Several of the guys in the audience
enjoyed good food, a night out and the opportunity to watch the fashions being
modeled. The women enjoyed the fashion fun and great bargains......all for a
Women's Auxiliary President Sandra Bobowski said "We donate all the proceeds
from our two featured events - the fashion show and the annual auction - as
grants to programs that help the homeless people, children, Veterans, and women
in the Greater Hartford area. I wish to thank everyone that helped make this
year's programs a success."
