Have you ever wondered what it would be like to attend Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan or Paris? The members of the Wayne Ladies Literary Club might have wondered that too. They can’t bring you that full-sensory experience. However, they can bring you “Fall Into Fashion,” their 2019 Fashion Show Fundraiser. The Coral Sash, a modern boutique with vintage charm located in South Lyon, will be bringing their latest styles to the runway using real women as models. The Coral Sash bills itself as a space where “grandmothers, mothers, and daughters could shop together in one place.”
The Ladies Literary Club has been in existence since 1896. Their mission is to stimulate intellectual development, give service to others, grant student scholarships and promote good fellowship among its members. The club gives two $1,000 scholarships to female students each year: one to a senior at Wayne Memorial High School and one to a senior at John Glenn High School. “Fall Into Fashion” will be Tuesday, October 15, at the First Congregational Church of Wayne, 2 Towne Square in Wayne. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. There will be light refreshments, basket raffles, 50/50 drawing, shopping and fun. Tickets are $35 each and are available by calling Mary Ann (734) 729-7247. After the fashion show, there will be an opportunity for you to shop and ask questions about the fashions you saw on the runway.
“I am so excited about this fundraiser because the community is supporting the youth of today to further their education for they are our future. I am also looking forward to visiting with other women in the area. I have been to several of Coral Sash’s Fashion Shows and they are great and you can shop and purchase a special outfit if you like. I am looking forward to laughing, having fun and maybe winning a basket or the 50/50 drawing. The tickets are going quickly so call and get your ticket,” said Fashion Show Chairman Judy Howton.
