It was a gorgeous, sun drenched afternoon on Beekman Street for the 5th Annual Fashion Show given by Mary A. Carter Temple #362. Honorary Chairperson Beth Alexander was on hand watching the parade of fabulous clothing as the community turned out to support the Mary A. Carter Temple and Frederick Allen Lodge #609. Pam Worth of Spoken Boutique emceed the show which featured fashions from Aggie Mullaney, Clothes Line, Feneex Boutique, Impressions, Rockabella, Saratoga Trunk, Spoken Boutique, Textile, Treasures, Violet’s and Stella’s, Saratoga National Golf Club, and Bird of Paradise Boutique.
A dizzying array of styles were showcased, from bathing suits to sequined gowns and dapper mens’ apparel. The grand finale of the show featured an exquisite lace wedding dress on hand from Something Bleu Bridal. The models were all perfection with Financial Secretary Anita Turner deftly organizing the group, while hair and makeup was done by Anthony Turner. As the first half of the fashion show came to an end the crowd sampled some of the delicious food (the deviled eggs were especially popular!), and sat outside the Lodge enjoying the beautiful weather.
Honorary Committee Member, Former Mayor Klotz, was in the crowd and chatted with the Tattlers. “The first year this was held inside, but they decided to open up the street. They get a great group here for a nice community event”. The Frederick Allen Lodge has operated in Saratoga since its Charter in 1925. Renovation of the historic building in the heart of the Beekman Street Arts District has been ongoing and the proceeds from the Fashion show will go to benefit both the Lodge and Mary A. Carter Temple. Supervisor and Honorary Committee member Joanne Yepsen has been involved with the building’s renovation and commented on some of the future plans. “The Building is being restored to its original state..they are going to put the second floor balcony on, which is were people used to come and sit and watch the parades that would go up and down Beekman Street”.
