Including some cancer survivors, models with the Alabama Fashion Alliance wore today’s chic clothing in a fashion celebration. Studio 106 owners Denise Swaney and Dana Burrows were event hosts. “We wanted men and women to be educated on breast cancer,” Swaney said.

Founded by LeJeune, the Alabama Fashion Alliance is a group of key professionals, community leaders, business owners and volunteers who work together for the common goal of uniting and advancing the fashion and art industries — locally, statewide and nationally.

“LeJeune was fantastic and kept everything organized for the show,” Swaney said. “She was absolutely a pleasure to work with.”

“Wow! What a show,” Swaney said about the models’ clothing. “There were so many different designs. Where do we start — pinks, teals and oranges from short to long. These clothes fit all body types.”

Event sponsors included Kerley Medical Equipment and Supply, Van Miller International, Sandra J. Bryant, Pretty Woman and Look Good Feel Good.

Some lucky guests received gift baskets with hair products and a flat iron that local businesses donated. Guests enjoyed quiche, pinwheels, meat-and-cheese tray, fresh vegetables and dip, brownies, red velvet cake, soft drinks and wine.

One of the night’s touching moments was the launch of sky lanterns, each billowing to more than a yard tall, to “honor our survivors and the loved ones that we have lost,” Swaney said. “At first, we had no luck. After lighting a few, we managed to get the lanterns up in the air.”

Donations were accepted at the free event. Clearview Cancer Institute in Huntsville will receive proceeds from “A Survivor’s Fashion Show.”
