Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s 10th Annual Runway Fashion Show takes ‘Mad Men’ theme
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.
