The FRIENDS of Carnegie Free Library of Connellsville will host a Vintage Fashion Show and Luncheon at 1 p.m. March 16 at the Carnegie Free Library auditorium.

“The fashion show will be a look back at spring fashions from bygone decades when women desired to look sophisticated, posh, glamorous and elegant. A variety of fashion, from day wear to evening wear, will be presented by models from local schools,” said presenter Johanna Harden.

Dresses, gowns, hats, gloves, purses and shoes, will all be presented, as well as a commentary as to why women dressed the way they did during different decades. Models will have their hair styled by the Connellsville Area Career and Technical Center cosmetology students in hairstyles reminiscent of the bygone years.

“There is limited seating, and the event is almost sold out. Johanna Harden, local vintage clothing fashionista, will be showcasing her beautiful collection of fashions from decades gone by. Local ladies will model the designs. Johanna will lend an entertaining dialogue as the master of ceremonies,” said Cathy Kumor, FRIENDS secretary.

The cost of the event is $20, which includes a buffet of various fresh salads, breads, dessert and beverage.

“The Vintage Fashion Show is sponsored by the FRIENDS of the Carnegie Free Library, and all proceeds benefit our beautiful and historic library,” added Kumor.

No tickets will be sold at the door. Those who would like to attend are encouraged to call now, as seating has become limited. Call the library at 724-628-1380 and leave a name and phone number and a member of FRIENDS will respond to the request.
