First Friday Logo

Calling all fashionistas.
    On Jan. 3, First Friday will host the Second Annual Fashion for Compassion event inside the Emma Kelly Theater at the Averitt Center for the Arts, 33 E. Main St. It will take place from 6 to 7 p.m.
    Several consignment shops are working together to bring the fashion show to the community. They include Madame Couture, Deja’Vu, The Feathered Nest, Children’s Cottage and Silk & Purple.
    Local fashion models will show off modern and trendy designer clothing from each of the consignment shops.
    There is no admission fee; however, paper goods are welcomed as tickets. All paper goods will go to Safe Haven, a shelter for victims of domestic violence.
    “We want to show people that you can have trendy updated styling clothing for everyday prices,” said Mary Proctor, the owner of Madame Couture. “As I have several sisters that have been sheltered by Safe Haven, it became dear to my heart. By putting this show on, we hope to lend a helping hand to these ladies in need.”
