American Girl Model Search set for Saturday

Sep. 13, 2013 @ 12:50 PM

BARBOURSVILLE -- The Huntington Mall and Jeslyn Dance Gallery are teaming up on Saturday, Sept. 14, to celebrate women and girls.

A women's show and an American Girl Model Search are planned at the mall on Saturday.

The Women's Show will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Macys Court. The event will feature a Fall Fashion Show for Women at 1 p.m., on-the-spot makeovers by JCPenney's Sephora, pilates and yoga demonstrations provided by Jeslyn staff, a sampling of food from different restaurants at the mall, door prizes, coupons and more.

At 3 p.m. Jeslyn Dance Gallery, the nonprofit that is the host organization for the Jeslyn Performing Arts Center, is hosting an American Girl model search. Registration is free and begins at 2 p.m. The search targets girls mostly age 6 and up and seeks to find models for a March 2014 American Girl Fashion Show at Jeslyn.

American Girl is a company that sells dolls sporting both historic and contemporary looks worn by girls through the years and designed to reflect the various personalities of the girls who have made them popular. American Girl Fashion Shows are hosted throughout the country to raise funds for locally owned nonprofits. Girls and their families can attend the shows to see familiar faces modeling historical fashions and the latest clothing, while hearing tidbits on girls fashion through the years from American Girl's prepared script.

An American Girl Fashion Show is planned for March 28-30, 2014, at Jeslyn Performing Arts Center, 1030 4th Ave. in Huntington. Proceeds will benefit Jeslyn's arts education programs.  Tickets range from $30 to $75 per person.

Ticket prices include an American Girl gift, a snack and drink from the American Girl “Cafe,” a pre-show featuring the “Dancing Dolls,” and the two-hour American Girl Fashion Show. Also at the event are a doll hair salon and photography studio, as well as American Girl Boutique, silent auction, raffle, door prizes and much more.
