Lights, Camera, Fashion! will explore fashion’s passions

ENID, Okla. — Fashion lovers will have a chance to explore their passion in Enid this week through E-Town Magazine’s Fashion Week.

The week-long festivities will start Monday and continue until the Lights, Camera, Fashion! Style Show at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Convention Hall.

Cathy Nulph, Etown promotions director, said she’s always been interested in fashion and wanted to bring some of the fun to Enid.

“Oklahoma City kind of did their own little fashion week, and we thought, why can’t we?” Nulph said.

The week will be filled with events like a Ladies Night Party at Posh By Haylee and fashion mini sessions at Muncy Photography.

The Lights, Camera, Fashion! Style Show will top off the celebrations with local models wearing clothing from retailers all across Enid. Special guests will include Bobbie Miller from News 9 and local Aly Akers.

“We wanted to show folks that Enid has great hair, great fashion,” Nulph said. “The same things that Oklahoma City has to offer, we do too.”

Nulph said she hosted a model search at Oakwood Mall, where she found some of the models for the show.

“I got a few of the models, like five or six of the models at the model search, and after that people called me and it just snowballed,” Nulph said. “I have over 30 models now.”

The show will display styles from trendy summer to formals, Nulph said. Plus, there will be a bonus focus on shoes.

“I love shoes, so I put together this little shoe dance, as we call it,” she said. “The girls will come out in high heels, and they’ll do this little dance that involves shoes and chairs.”

General admission ticket holders will get an appetizer and access to a cash bar.

VIP tickets for the show are $100 and will include food, drinks and a “swag bag.” General admission tickets are $25, and 25 percent of all ticket sales will go to Loaves & Fishes food pantry.  

To purchase tickets, call (855) TIX-ENID or go online to www.EnidEventCenter.com.

As an added Fashion Week bonus, Rebecca McKenny, event organizer, said she has been planning a styling event to highlight some of Enid’s aspiring stylists.

The seven contestants had 30 minutes to choose an outfit from one of many assigned stores around Enid, McKenny said.

McKenny said she took photos of the outfits and will create an online survey, where people can vote for their favorite ensemble during Fashion Week. Voting will last until midnight Thursday, and the winner will be announced at the Friday fashion show.

The winner will receive a spread in E-Town Magazine, McKenny said.

Nulph said she plans to continue Fashion Week in the coming years.

“Hopefully this will just be the model, and next year it will just get bigger and bigger,” she said.

Most importantly, Fashion Week will show Enid residents that the city has options for even the trendiest shoppers, she said.

“We have everything Oklahoma City has,” Nulph said. “We don’t need to go anywhere else. Shop local.”

Conrady Electric, Curttright Honda, Rick’s Pharmacy and StarTek are the title sponsors for Fashion Week.
