While the pandemic and civil unrest have caused inaugural festivities to be scaled down tremendously, there were many who still dressed the part for the inauguration ceremony, even in their living rooms.
Adell’s Beach Boutique in Gary, Indiana helped virtual attendees make trendy outfit and accessory selections by hosting an “Inaugural Look Fashion Show” last week at 567 S. Lake St. The event was broadcast live on the boutique’s Facebook page, along with several other business pages.
“The pandemic has limited so many activities, so we wanted to do something fun and engaging for customers who planned to watch this historic moment in history,” said owner Dr. Gwen Adell.
Modeling Adell’s Inaugural fashions were local community leaders from various businesses and organizations. As each representative hit the runway, he or she gave a brief presentation about the organization/company they were representing. The fashion show was commentated by Chelsea Whittington of C WHITT PR and Karen Freeman-Wilson, former Gary Mayor and President and CEO of the Chicago Urban League.
The model line-up was as follows: Joslyn Kelly, J’s Breakfast Club; Jaunesia Davis, We Are the Village, Inc.; Dr. Janet Seabrook, Community HealthNet Health Centers; LeBarron Burton, Sr., Popcorn World; Caren Jones, YWCA of NWI; Jose Ibarra, Gary Housing Authority; Patricia Ryan David and Darcelle Williams, Indiana Garza Fat Loss Camp; Dr. Vanessa Allen-McCloud, Urban League of NWI; and Tiffany Blakemore, Vitamin T Fitness.
