A fashion show at the Chalmers Herman Theatre at East Central University’s Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center April 7 raised funds to benefit Ada Boys’ and Girls’ Club.

Tom Runnells hosted the event.

The show was organized and produced by Esther Davis as part of her senior project at ECU.  Davis is a mass communication major with a concentration in print and electronic media.

Part of the project was to showcase all the learned skills needed as a mass communications major, including advertising, designing, photography, speaking and social skills.

“However, the biggest accomplishment was raising awareness for the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Ada,” Davis said. 

Entry to the show was free and a love basket was available for donations.

Models showcased clothing and shoes donated by Maurices, Cato, Factory Connection, Rage, Unbridled, Tattered Lace and Lillian’s Bridal.  

Models’ hair was styled by OG’s Place, Artisan Salon and Spa and InStyle while make-up was by Merle Norman and Mary Kay Consultant Natalie.

Models were ECU students Tosha English, Stratford, Martha Fernandez, Yantis, Texas, Lilly Fernandez, Yantis, Texas, Emily Mitchell, Idabel, Madeline Wilson, Shawnee, Courtney Ray, Ada, Paige Holley, Ardmore, Kyla Warden, Oklahoma City, and Catrina Nelson, McAlester. 

 ECU photography students Matthew Hamilton, Guthrie, Joe Cregger, Pauls Valley, Roy Harris, Newalla, Shannon Littlefield, Ada, and ECU professor Linda Schaefer provided pictures of the event.
