Misha’s Models to provide entertainment at Fashionetta

Misha’s Models of Jackson will entertain at the second Fashionetta, presented by Omicron Alpha Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. on Sat., Nov. 5 at 7 p.m.

Haley Lloyd of Batesville, Shakira Horton Davis of Sardis, Ebone Payne of Memphis, and Brianna Hollowell of Holly Springs will be vying for the crown of Little Miss Fashionetta.

Brittany Selman of Memphis, Ashley Bridges of Grenada, Jessica Russell of Flora and Raven Autry of Holly Springs will be vying for the crown of Junior Miss Fashionetta.

Sheena Shelton of Holly Springs, Camille Ballentine of Batesville and Catrissa Bailey of Holly Springs will by vying for the crown of Miss Fashionetta.

Throughout the summer, the contestants have been engaged in service projects in local communities, which involve tutoring, caring for and helping the elderly, volunteering for MIFA, providing free baby sitting services, volunteering with local organizations, visiting nursing homes and many other service oriented activities. These volunteer projects undergird the basic foundation of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, which is service to all mankind.

The young ladies, their parents and members of the sorority visited the Clinton Library in Little Rock, the Pink Palace Museum, Stax Museum and the Orpheum in Memphis, as well as participating in skating, etiquette workshops, personal grooming workshops, a sleepover and other bonding activities.

Fashionetta 2005 climaxes an eight-month stretch of wholesome fun, educational and cultural experiences as well as providing service to others.

On the night of the Fashionetta, each young lady will have on display the service project she undertook as part of the requirement to be considered a contestant. These projects will be set up in the lobby of the Doxey Fine Arts building and can be viewed by those in attendance. The service projects will be judged by a team from Memphis and the winner in each of the Fashionetta categories will be awarded a plaque and a surprise package of gifts.

The public is invited to attend. Come out and spend the evening relaxing and listening to jazz and moderate rhythm and blues performed by The Two Guyz of Oxford; Smith, band director at Holly Springs High School; and Parham, music teacher at Holy Family School, throughout the Fashionetta.

At the same time, watch Misha’s Models take the runway in the latest styles that are sure to please the eye this fall and winter.

Tickets may be purchased at the door.
