Outdoor fashion show will feature 'amusing' decorated shoes

utdoor runways in Sooke?

Yes indeed. But no airplanes will be landing. Instead, a family-friendly fashion show will be exhibited on this in-town runway.

On Friday, July 5 from 6 to 9 p.m., La Petite Boutique is hosting an outdoor fashion show as a fundraiser for the Sooke Food Bank.

“We love doing fashion shows,” said Ashley Manning, the woman organizing the event. La Petite Boutique just received some new cupcake dresses and a new clothing line. It seemed like a natural fit. That, and “we just want to help out.”

The event will be hosted in their parking lot, located at 6707 West Coast Rd. It is free to attend and is guaranteed to be family friendly. As stated on their Facebook page, “Sugar and Spice theme with seating for 150.”

Owner Kristen Lindal says there will be about a dozen models there, making for a busy night with many fashions being modelled.

There will be a donation jar for those looking to empty their pockets. For those who want a more memorable taste of the event, there will also be a bake sale. And if you really want those dancing shoes, a few delicious items will be auctioned off, including some candy-filled stilettos.

Should the weather not smarten up in good time, the event will be moved inside.
