Back in October, I had the chance to participate in what turned out to be a great fashion show. Vintage Now II, sponsored by Pastimes Antiques in Cape Girardeau, raised over $30,000 for the Safe House for Women, also in Cape Girardeau. The theme of the show was incorporating modern pieces with classic vintage wear. There were two segments, the first was "Just for Fun" where the models picked their own outfits and the second was "Hollywood Now," the outfits for which Deb Maevers, owner of Pastimes Antiques, picked out. Me and about six other girls from my fashion merchandising classes were "dressers" for the event. We ran around doing whatever was needed, from double-sided sticking shoes to the models' feet to rolling racks of clothing around behind the stage to operating the curtains that the models had to walk through. Here are some pictures from the show!
