Unlike some forgettable clothing eras (’80s, anyone?), the ’50s and ’60s seem to have an everlasting fashion cachet. Those retro styles are popular again, thanks in part to television’s “Mad Men,” the inspiration for Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s 10th Annual Runway Fashion Show.

Subtitled “Mad for Style,” the fab food, fashion and shopping extravaganza took place Nov. 6 in the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center, where every available surface held old family photos, vintage clothing, Barbies, paint-by-number “art” and other items mined from basements, attics and grandma’s mantel.

Outside, ready to burn rubber were vintage Corvette and Jaguar coupes. Inside were live models from Stage Right!

In charge were cool co-chairwomen Jane Church and Bonnie Miliotis. Runway commentary was provided by Mrs. Pennsylvania United States 2013, Mary Brennan.

It was a total gas for all 250 in attendance.

Groovy guys and gals on the scene included Barbara Ferrier, Linda Brown, Jan Taylor-Condo, Marge Nelson, Donna Rhodes, Louise Smith, Jen Tinsman, Debbi Hamaty, Annah Sukay, Carol Demi, Rebecca Sexton, Scott andMonique Mears, Ted andApril Kopas withTeddy, Jim andColette Silvis, Nathan Smith, Lisa Tereshko andAnastasia Steinman.

Also,Debby Reese, Becky Thorne, Jeanne Adams, Marty McGuire, Linda Iezzi, Linda Hayden, Carol Brisbane, Mindy Vickers, Connie Smith, Mary Anne Craig, Kim Grindle, Pam Errett, Noreen Tracy, Valeria Wolk, Anita Wolk Forisko, Sandy Wolk Schimizzi and from the trust, Mike Langer, Vonnie Goldsborough andKelli Brisbane.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
