Guys, gals walk runway at Prom Expo

— DANVILLE — From long and elegant to sleek and sassy, fashions of all styles were on display at the second annual Prom Expo.

Organized as a fundraiser by the Danville High School Class of 2015, the event turned the Danville Primary School’s multipurpose room into a fashion catwalk Sunday afternoon.

Emceed by Danville junior Luke Maffei, the show featured 21 girls and six boys, all high school students, modeling both new outfits and ones donated by community members.

The idea for the Prom Expo began three years ago, when the high school began collecting gently used dresses to offer as discounted prom gowns for local girls.

“We wanted to do something to help girls with the expense of going to the prom,” said Deb Burger, who serves as adviser to the Class of 2015 along with Kaitlin Huber. Last year, it was decided to hold the first Prom Expo as a means of getting word of the dress donation drive out to the community.

Local bridal shops were invited to show new dresses, along with the donated ones. This year, participating shops were Bloomsburg’s Exclusively You, Lewisburg Bridal, Selinsgrove’s Bridals By J, Danville’s D’s Clothier and Selinsgrove’s Brides Bouquet.

Several other vendors set up shop in the lobby, selling locally made and nationally marketed products. Among the vendors were jewelry maker Lia Sophia, Pink Papaya makeup and skincare products, Scentsy fragrances and candles, D’s Clothier, Danville-based Premier Studios photography and Bloomsburg’s Knits and Nick Knacks.

The donated dresses were available for sale after the show as well, with most ranging in price from $10 to $40.
