Expect the young Jewish girls of Louisville to look like fashionistas this year at High Holiday services after they attend the Louisville Jewish Community Center’s Fashion Show and Tea Party on Sunday, August 30, at 3 p.m. at Standard Country Club. A full tea service complete with beverages and treats will be served.
Fresh Boutique 4 Girls, Louisville’s newest store for girls’ clothing, will showcase the latest, most exciting styles for fall in the fashion show and also have a pop-up boutique on site so attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the outfits modeled plus many more.
PJ Library will also feature a reading of Hanna’s Sabbath Dress by Itzhak Schweiger-Dmi’el for those not interested in shopping after the fashion show.
The idea for this event stemmed from Tracy Geller and Keren Benabou, past Young Leadership Award Winners, while they were attending the GA in Baltimore this past spring. Both ladies thought occasional programs targeted to each gender while encouraging family attendance would be special for all involved. The JCC agreed and thought the Fashion Show and Tea would be a great part of its JCC Louisville 125 Years programming. This special afternoon is an opportunity for multiple generations of a family to spend time together.
Fresh Boutique 4 Girls, owned by Shelly Breier and Lynn Saltzman, jumped at the opportunity to fashion the Jewish community’s youngest members. They are providing outfits for the models and bringing many items to Standard for purchase. Fresh Boutique 4 Girls is located in a recently expanded store in Westport Village.
Program organizer Jennifer Tuvlin said, “Our hope is that mothers, grandmothers, aunts or any special female friend will attend this event with their daughters or family members.
“I remember how exciting it was to get a new outfit and not be able to wear it until Rosh Hashanah,” she continued. “I am sure all of the young girls attending will feel the same way after they see the great outfits that will be featured in the fashion show. I have three boys but still wanted to buy half of the clothes at Fresh Boutique 4 Girls for my friends’ kids when Shelly and I started planning this event.”
Your daughter or granddaughter could even be one of the models. Anyone who registers to attend with his or her child by August 1 is eligible to enter that child, age 5-12, for a drawing. Two children from that pool will be selected as models for the show. Register online at jewishlouisville.org/tea_fashion.
The host committee is Keren Benabou, Anna Feitelson, Claire Felsen, Tracy Geller, Elise Goldstein, Julie Marks, Shannon Rothschild, Melanie Wachsman, Diane Weinberg and Hunter Weinberg.
