The runway was stunning thanks to co-stylists Helena Williams and Ericka Morris with hair & makeup by Deborah Coull and John Sheehan and a detailed script prepared by Maureen Aylward.

FlyerThe 2013 Show showcased over 100 looks with 50+ artists and $19K worth of artwork sold.  Artists, designers, and models came from all strata of the north shore from local Manchester High School students, Montserrat College of Art students, local celebrities (author Wendy Booker, national spokesperson for MS among them, Sista Felicia – Gifts of Gold cookbook), to local floral designers from Sage Floral Studios. It was a melting pot of the creative economy. Our Emcee was Steve Aveson, anchor for NECN.
