Fashion crowd chips in for WMPG show

Local fashion designers strutted out their spring stuff on the Port City Music Hall stage Sunday night for the 10th annual WMPG fashion show.5-6-14-TG-wmpg-Nikki-Hunt-of-Hoop-Vixens
The emcee for the evening was Cat Smith, a senior work-study student at the University of Southern Maine. She's been with the radio station and the fashion show for four years, and also works on their community calendar.
"As a freshman, if there were a microphone in the room, she would be as far away from it as possible," said Dale Robin Goodman, the station's development director. "Now, look at her!"
Smith provided cool runway commentary as the models walked the catwalk, showing off new duds from Aquarius Funkk, Metrey, ELynn Design, Giselle Larios, Stephanie Harmon, Emma Egan, Ivy Ferrelli, and Blackbird Mercantile, all returning to the program. This year, several new designers got involved, including Kelli Burnham, Yuman Design, Sassy Frassy Lassy, and A Gathering of Stitches.
Live runway music was provided by local artist The Moodiest. The show kicked off with entertainment by Dark Follies, gothic vaudevillians, as well as The Hoop Vixens, a pair of neon ladies dancing with LED hula shoops.
The fashion show is a benefit for WMPG community radio, a volunteer-driven nonprofit radio station broadcasting 24 hours per day from the Portland campus of the University of Southern Maine.
"WMPG broadcasts an eclectic schedule of programming, which includes music of many genres, local public affairs, and news, all free from corporate influence," organizers said. "Local listeners, businesses and organizations, and benefits events like the fashion show provide a large portion of the funding for WMPG."
