Fall Into Fashion Show is set

The members of the Wayne Ladies Literary Club are hoping to bring a little of the excitement of the fashion shows in Milan, New York and London to the local community with their Fall Into Fashion event.
Fall Into Fashion is the 2019 fundraiser for the group. The Coral Sash, a modern boutique with vintage charm located in South Lyon, will be bringing the latest styles to the runway using real women as models. The Coral Sash bills itself as a space where “grandmothers, mothers, and daughters could shop together in one place.”

The Ladies Literary Club has been in existence since 1896. Their mission is to stimulate intellectual development, give service to others, grant student scholarships and promote good fellowship among its members, a spokeswoman explained.
The club awards two $1,000 scholarships to female students each year: one to a senior at Wayne Memorial High School and one to a senior at John Glenn High School. This fundraiser is a major event for the club with proceeds going toward continuing to award those scholarships.
Fall Into Fashion will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15 at the First Congregational Church of Wayne, 2 Towne Square in Wayne. There will be light refreshments, basket raffles, a 50/50 drawing and shopping. Tickets are $35 each and are available by calling (734) 729-7247. After the fashion show, there will be an opportunity to shop and ask questions about the fashions seen on the runway.
“I am so excited about this fundraiser because the community is supporting the youth of today to further their education for they are our future.  I am also looking forward to visiting with other women in the area,” explained Fashion Show Chairman Judy Howton.
“I have been to several of Coral Sash's fashion shows and they are great, and you can shop and purchase a special outfit if you like.  I am looking forward to laughing, having fun and maybe winning a basket or the 50/50 drawing,” she added. “The tickets are going quickly so call and get your ticket.”
