It’s almost FASHION SHOW time! LBD Merrillville, October 16th

The Goodwill Fashion Show Team is hard at work again to bring you an amazing runway show on October 16, 2014 in Merrillville, IN

For months we’ve been hunting down perfect looks at local Goodwill Stores, casting models of all ages and sizes, and finishing outfits for the runway. I can promise that those who attend this season’s show will not be disappointed! 

The pop-up Boutique that will be at the luncheon will be the best yet. Dozens of racks of great on-trend clothes, gobs of shoes, tons of designer handbags, barrels full of great jewelry… it will all be at the store!

We know that you all love coming to our luncheon fashion show events for several reasons: an amazing Runway Show, 50% Off Shopping at the pop-up Boutique and a nice luncheon with your friends.  BUT, there is so much more to this event. 

All proceeds from fashion show events will benefit Goodwill’s Mission to provide jobs, training and placement services for people with barriers to employment. Giving back into our communities can help people with barriers find a new sense of dignity, meaning and purpose.  The intent of this event is to raise awareness of the many job programs that our Workforce Development Services Division has to offer as well as educating individuals about the affordable name-brand fashions that can be purchased at our Goodwill Industries of Michiana Retail Stores.

There is still a little time for you to get in on the fun, get some great deals and support a great cause. Tickets can be purchased HERE.   $45 per Ticket – act fast!  Seats are selling out! 

Major Debit and Credit Cards Accepted

Hope to see YOU at the Luncheon and Fashion Show…or maybe in the pop-up Boutique!

Little Black Dress Model Search starts…NOW

This time every year, we start our intense search for a group of models for the Goodwill Industries of Michiana Little Black Dress.

This year, our search will begin on Wednesday, March 19th! 

This is an open call which means all that are interested are invited to come and express their interest.  Kathy Friend, our fashion guru and producer of this event, will be on-hand to answer your questions and tell you all that is involved with being a Goodwill Model.

Those will be seen by Kathy on a first come-first served basis.  Each interview will take about 10-15 minutes. During your interview, you can expect:

  • Learn about what the team from the Style and Image Institute will be looking for in a group of models for the show

  • What to prepare for if you are chosen to be one of the models
  • You will be asked to sign a release document

Everyone interested in being a model must attend one of our Open Call events.  There will be one more Open Call on Wednesday, March 25 from 2pm – 4om.
