Show highlights the latest styles

The latest in men’s, women’s and children’s fashion was on display Saturday at the Moton Museum for the inaugural Moton Fashion Show. Proceeds benefitted the Moton Family Challenge. More than 75 people attended the first-of-its-kind event.

“I am very happy with how Moton’s first-ever fashion show went,” said Megan Clark, who serves as commonwealth’s attorney for Prince Edward County and helped organize the event. “Working with Sherre Atkins was amazing and our vision came to fruition. I hope that in the years to come we will be able to integrate this into Moton’s annual events and expand upon the foundation that was set.”

Atkins, who helped organize the event, said the show was “nothing short of spectacular. The community came out in a major way to support the event as we sought to raise funds and awareness for our Family Challenge Fundraiser.”

Atkins, who works as guest services manager and administrative specialist at the museum, said the event was “something different for the community to enjoy. It’s not everyday that you have the latest fashions of the season showcased in Farmville. I personally love fashion, so when Joy Speakes (chair of Moton Family Challenge) and … Clark … mentioned a fashion show, I immediately volunteered to help.”
