Fashion Debut gets you to ‘think spring’

It may feel like the dead of winter, but it’s also time to begin thinking ahead to spring fashions.

“I think people are probably looking for a good excuse to think spring,” said Crystal Graham of Augusta Free Press, which is presenting the 2012 Spring Fashion Debut on Saturday, Feb. 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the WTA’s Gateway, 329 W. Main St., Downtown Waynesboro.

The 2012 Spring Fashion Debut will preview new spring lines from more than 15 vendors for companies including Cookie Lee Jewelry, Dove Chocolate, Vault Denim, Jockey, Kelly’s Kids, Perfectly Posh, Stella and Dot, thirty one and more.

The Spring Fashion Debut, sponsored exclusively by Realtor Kathleen Kellett, will be part of a busy Saturday in Downtown Waynesboro, which will also play host on Feb. 11 to a Love Is In The Air promotion including a Chocolate Walk being put on by downtown merchants.

The iconic L-O-V-E- artwork – 16 feet long and more than six feet high – used by the Virginia Tourism Corp. to promote its Virginia Is For Lovers marketing campaign will be set up downtown for the event as well.

“We’re hoping people will come out for the Spring Fashion Debut, of course, but while they’re here we’d also hope that they take a minute to see what else Downtown Waynesboro has to offer. There’s a lot going on downtown these days, and we think our Fashion Debut and the Love Is In The Air promotion can serve to showcase what we have here,” Graham said.


Free admission. All those who attend will have the opportunity to win a free Kindle Fire courtesy of Realtor Kathleen Kellett. With any purchase, attendees will also have the opportunity to win $500 in fashion accessories.

The event is being held Feb. 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Gateway, 329 W. Main St., in Downtown Waynesboro.
