The Southern Christian Leadership Conference held its annual fashion show entitled “A Fashion Explosion Saluting Women Who Care” featuring Wilbourn Sister Designs at the Sheraton Hotel.
The event showcased exclusive designs by Janice and Caroline Wilbourn, known in the fashion industry as the Wilbourn Sisters, whose garments range from wearable, casual and chic, to elegant and elaborate, all of which are inspired by their mother’s legacy as a seamstress.
The evening was a celebration of women who give back to the community, including Angela Carswell, Angie Wead, Cassandra Allen, Doris Vaughans, Gail Sutton, Gwendolyn Masson, Jacqualine Jones, Johnnie Sankey, Sandi Collins, and Valerie Jordan. Each woman was honored with a trophy for her involvement in making notable contributions in support of the SCLC’s mission.
