DRESSING UP: Westport Style, Friday, October 12, 2012, 6PM-9Pm at the Westport Woman’s Club, 44 Imperial Avenue. The Westport Woman’s Club(WWC) in collaboration with The Westport Historical Society(WHS) presents a premier fundraiser where yesterday's fashion meets today's style. Join us for a Girls’ Night Out (GNO); an exciting evening of entertainment, food, a fashion show, special demonstrations, hair stylists, makeover artists and fabulous prizes.
Local retailers will be on hand to chat about accessorizing and simple tricks to update your wardrobe to achieve the latest runway look. Make-up and hair stylists will help you get that glowing and chic style.
Relax and schmooze after your make-over with a glass of wine and appetizers in the warmth of the Club living room or wander and enjoy the historical costumes (the way we were) provided by the Historical Society.
And, jet-lagged from Paris Fashion Week, our own Westporter, Harriet Mays Powell will join us as the moderator for the panel discussion during the fashion shows. Harriet Mays Powell began her fashion career working for several magazines from editor to senior editor positions, including Glamour, New York Times Magazine, Fashion of the Times, Elle and as Fashion Director of New York magazine. Today, she is the Editor in Chief, creator and owner of her own 'The Look Now' online award winning Fashion magazine.
