Lucky Penny celebrates spring with fashion show
It"s not just a movie. It"s a high-styling fashion show and, thanks to a collaboration between rpm Records, Shear Shakti and Lucky Penny, it"s a night to remember.
"It"s our fourth show since we"ve been at this location," Lucky Penny"s Jennele Vaquera said.
Think balloons, food (from Char), wine (from Peabody"s) and springtime. Friday marks the return of spring, at least in the fashion sense.
"There"s a lot of florals and stripes and lace in for spring," Vaquera said, and, starting Friday, winter drab is out as the store makes the switch to the new season. "Everyone"s been cooped up and is ready for fun."
And that fun is waiting for participants on the runway. Models include community members decked in makeup and hair styles courtesy of Shear Shakti.
Each show is different. Last show followed the "hardware" theme, with tools hanging from the runway ceiling. This year"s "Up" theme brings color and balloons front and center.
It"s all about showcasing the clothes and services the businesses offer, Vaquera said.
"It"s like an open house, but with something different just for Boone," she said.
The show hits Lucky Penny/Shear Shakti (693 W. King St.). Dress up and get ready for spring fashion.
