The Del Sol Chapter of National Charity League (NCL) will hold its annual Fashion Show on Nov. 4 at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel. An opportunity drawing will be held to raise funds for a “hands on” project at Rady Children’s Hospital. Twenty-six girls from Carlsbad to Coronado will be representing the chapter’s sophomore class in this year’s “Off the Page” Fashion Show.
NCL is a philanthropic organization whose mission is to foster the mother-daughter relationship. The organization is committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. For more than 50 years, National Charity League has thrived as one of the nations most distinctive and well-respected mother-daughter membership organizations. Today, NCL has more than 175 Chapters with more than 40,000 actively engaged members.
The annual fashion show, one of the signature events of the NCL Del Sol chapter, is re-imagined every year with a unique theme which embodies the spirit of the class. “This year’s ‘Off the Page’ fashion show will include free flowing, uninhibited concepts. Making connections to something larger, not confining your creativity, spring boarding a small idea into something great, and writing a sentence that turns into a book or a sketch that turns into art are all part of this vision. These words are what we see in our daughters – they are all ready to own their own page that will launch them onto the world’s stage,” commented Sarah King, 2012 Fashion Show Chair.
In addition to raising funds for a community service project, the fashion show provides the girls with training in the areas of poise, stage presence, self-esteem and personal style. This year, the girls will be modeling fashions from local boutiques including Mia Bella, Nicole Miller, Mabels, Daisy Blue, LF La Jolla, Tobi Blatt, Pretty Please, Pink Lagoon, and The Back Room. Hair and make-up services have been donated by HAIM Salons.
