On the holiday runway
The civic center was decorated elaborately for Christmas with vendors booths set up lining the walls advertising some of their new cloths and merchandise.
“Nabors Home Center assisted Blooming Heights in decorating the Civic Center in Christmas dampécor and live Christmas trees,” said Joyce East, adding that two of the models, Tez Gates and Devin Murphy, were an unexpected bonus.
“The ‘Tool Time Guys’ made a surprise trip down the runway adorned with tools and building supplies,” East said.
In the more traditional fashion show portion, children and teens from all over the county came to strut their stuff and show off the upcoming trends for the holidays and for the New Year.
“Fifty models modeled for Houston businesses,” East said. “Casual wear, holiday and dress attire as well as evening and formal wear. Participating merchants showcased their merchandise that night.”
Tickets were given to those who visited the vendor booths for drawings between modeling. Some of the prizes included hair cuts and styles, discounts on prom dresses, earrings and jewelry, a $50 gift certificate and $150 certificate from Mainstreet. Judy McQuary emceed the event which put a focus on local shopping.
“It was well attended,” East said. “It was something different.”
