A Glamorous Occasion

What could bring together Miss Missouri, Project Runway stars and an Alderwoman? A good cause.

On March 22, 300 people attended the Glamour and Fantasy Spring Fashion Show presented by The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of St. Louis.


Florence Dewan, a professor at Lindenwood University, produced the show, which included the designs of Lindenwood Graduate students Altjin Batkhuu, Ameli Skoglund and Amra Alihodzic. IMG_1291c

Attendees were treated to a Silent Auction and Luncheon while at the event. Laura Kathleen, St. Louis native and finalist on the ninth season of Project Runway, hosted the event. A.J. Thouvenot  and Michael Drummond, both of Project Runway Season 8, showed off their designs.
