Art of Fashion II puts spring styles on runway
Does hope spring eternal, or are we just eternally hoping for spring this year?
Either way, the Latrobe Art Center spurred our desire to replace the drab winter duds with something fun and flirty during the Art of Fashion II, presented April 20 at Latrobe Country Club.
Morning snow showers gave way to sun just as the event opened with socializing and accessory shopping.
A light but satisfying lunch of homemade soup and grilled chicken Caesar salad followed the presentation of new spring styles by Doncaster, Carabella, Sandra Cadavid and, for the sporting set, Ligonier Outfitters.
Welcoming remarks came from Gabrielle Nastuck, art center director. The ever-reliable and entertaining Jennifer Miele provided runway commentary.
Event organizers includedJoe Bellack, Georgia Teppert, Kathy Sobota and Nastuck.
Among committee members and patrons on the scene were Kim Kramer, Diana Kreiling, Dorothy Hufford, Lauren Condon, Nancy Bures, Christine Okonak, Kathy Rafferty, Pat Toy and Jan Sabatos.
Also seen: Theresa Rusbosin, Carole Higgins, Diane Sobota, Sandi Zitterbart, Beth Searfoss, Jill Briercheck, Phyllis Kluska, Jean Eiseman, Jacki Plummer, Carol Bayer, Kay Rowe, Carol Kave and Vicki Sackett.
