Puttin’ on the ritz Nov. 21; Fashion show will support Idaho State University New Year’s Eve Gala

Posted November 20, 2013

This shindig will be the cat’s meow. And how! Treasure’s Formal Bridal & Tuxedos, 149 N. Main Street, will hold a period fashion show from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at its Pocatello shop.

Live models will be showing off swell gowns and nifty tuxedos that are “hip to the jive” of the 1920s. The show will support Idaho State University’s Great Gatsby-themed New Year’s Eve Gala, the proceeds of which will go toward scholarships for ISU’s visual and performing arts students.

The event is open to the public and no reservations are required. Hors d’ oeuvres and wine will be served.

Treasure Johnston owns Treasure’s Formal Bridal & Tuxedos, with stores in Idaho Falls, Rexburg and Pocatello.

She said she loves the styles of the ’20s and that the fashion show is designed to be “an experience,” for those in attendance, a night when people can step back in time to years long past.

“They’re going to be able to get a real feel for the era,” she said. “I can’t wait. It’s going to be fabulous. If you don’t want to have a fun night, don’t come!”

The formal wear store participated in ISU’s annual “Welcome Back Orange and Black” event in August. Shortly afterward, they were approached by the school about being the outlet for tux and gown rentals for those attending the gala.

Apart from supporting ISU’s art students, Johnston and Reed said holding a fashion show was a good way to reach out and connect to the people of Pocatello.
