The vintage fashion show showcased festive timeless dresses. Some were from family members, resale stores, or consignment shops. Organizers explained, “The goal was to offer a sustainable message that you don’t have to just spend money on new clothes during the holidays. Instead turn your attention to family and save a little to give to your favorite nonprofit.”
