Lights! Camera! Fashion!

The American Business Woman’s Association (ABWA) of Lehigh Acres held its annual luncheon, fashion show and silent auction on Saturday at the Colonial Community Center in Fort Myers. This year’s event was entitled, “Lights! Camera! Fashion!” and incorporated a Hollywood theme. Money raised from the event goes towards the ABWA scholarship fund.
Attending the event were some very impressive-looking celebrity impersonators. Look-alikes for Jack Nicholson (Robert Bullard), Danny DeVito (Stu Gordon), and even Megan Fox (Sondra) added to the fun and made themselves available to everyone for special photo opportunities.
The dining area was filled with guests through the entire event. An empty seat was difficult, if not impossible to find.
After the luncheon, it was time for the fashion show. The show was divided into two parts. The first half was dedicated to the fashions of “yesterday” – a kind of tribute to the fashion trends that were once popular in decades past. The second half focused on popular fashion trends we now see today.
The fashions were provided by Denimianco Boutique and Pinkies Boutique.
Prize donations for the silent auction were made by numerous local businesses.
