It was a golden anniversary for the Phyllis Wheatley YWCA Committee on Administration, an organization of African American women who have held a fashion show to benefit homeless women in St. Louis for 50 years. This year, the organization presented 50 Years of Fashions by partnering with the Lindenwood University’s Fashion Design School to showcase fashions from the '60s, '70s, '80s and beyond. The event featured a jazz reception with at least a dozen boutique fashion vendors before the luncheon and extensive fashion show. Carol Daniel was the mistress of ceremonies for the event.
