DRESSING UP: Westport Style which took place on Friday, October 12, 2012, was a great success. The Westport Woman’s Club(WWC) in collaboration with The Westport Historical Society(WHS) presented its premier fundraiser where yesterday's fashion meets today's style. The evening consisted of entertainment, appetizers, a fashion show, special demonstrations, hair stylists, makeover artists and fabulous prizes.
Local retailers were on hand chatting about accessorizing and simple tricks to update wardrobes to achieve the latest runway look. Make-up and hair stylists advised attendees on how to get a glowing and chic style.
Wine and appetizers were served in the warmth of the Club living room and historical costumes were provided by the Historical Society.
