Women's Club and Dillard's Go for Style
The Women's Club of Greater Lakeway RUNWAY '14 style show attracted 279 members to the Lakeway Resort and Spa on Oct. 27. The event featured
fashions, shoes and accessories provided by Dillard's-Hill Country
Galleria, modeled by Women's Club members who rocked and rolled to
"Dillard's was so gracious to work with us again this year. Not only
did they provide the fashions but also sales staff to help our models
dress and change. We could not do this show without Dillard's support,"
said event co-chair Suzie Leggio.
Co-chair Vickie Taylor also thanked Lakeway Resort and Spa, Flowers by
Nancy, too!, Transformation Salon, and Mike Heyse of the resort's event
technology group for their contributions. "So many helped make this
event a success. Suzie and I appreciate how many of our members and
area businesses chipped in to help," Taylor said.
Emcee Joyce Christian led off with a sassy, stylized introduction that
set the tone for five segments, featuring outer wear, fitness, travel,
casual and "Lakeway Haute" designs. The event's theme colors were a
deep orange, bright blue, black and dark yellow, which carried out in
floral centerpieces, name tags, posters and programs.
"We wanted this to be a contemporary event, with modern colors and fashions that women would want to wear," Leggio said.
"From the beginning Suzie and Vickie wanted to do something unique,
and, from the way members rushed to see the clothes after the show, I
think their concept succeeded. Best of all, our members had a great
time," said WCGL president Kitty Lichty.
