Fashion event to showcase local shops & designer

The fourth annual ladies fashion show is happening Monday, September 18

The fourth annual Ladies Fashion Show and Dessert Night will be put on by the Sylvan Lake Seniors Centre on Monday, September 18 at Nexsource, Sylvan Lake Multiplex Centre.

The event continues to be inspired by the words of 96-year old fashion icon, Iris Apfel, “I say, dress to please yourself. Listen to your inner muse and take a chance. Wear something that says, ‘here I am today.’” Maryan Weenick, Program Coordinator, aims to encourage women to have fun with fashion at any age and prove that dressing up doesn’t have to be boring.

The Sylvan Lake Seniors Center has teamed up with clothing labels Sassy and Classy, the Rimbey Boutique and Sylvan Lake’s own local clothing designer Sally Omeme from Omeme designs.

Each participant will showcase a variety of looks. Rimbey Boutiuqe will be featuring their Italian line of clothing suitable for all ages. Sassy and Classy is showcasing a variety of tops, tunics, leggings, jackets and sweaters to take you into fall. Sally Omeme is a knitwear designer specializing in hand knits and up cycling. All three labels agree on one thing: women should feel celebrated no matter their age.

Laura Lee Lewis will be lending her voice to the occasion and Brenda Fuss-Dutz will be playing the ivories, providing musical entertainment for the event.

For more information on this event you can contact Maryan at (403)887-5428 or slseniorspc@gmail.com. Doors open at 6:30 pm and fashion show starts at 7:00. Tickets available until September 14.
