Fashion for a Purpose

We love fashion, especially when it’s for a purpose! We’re passionate about supporting our community, especially nonprofits whose purpose it is to help women and children.

On Saturday, April 13, Lucinda’s, along with the Finishing School for Modern Women and Charisma – Inner Beauty, arranged a fun evening to celebrate mothers and daughters, raising $1,505 for Laughing Feet Performers through admission and raffle ticket sales for prizes from local businesses. After the show, we hosted a festive after party at Lucinda’s, donating 20 percent of sales that evening to our cause. 

Laughing Feet Performers connects performers with special needs, aged 10 to 25, with typical peers to study musical and artistic expression, giving performance opportunities to people who normally wouldn’t have them. One of the highlights of the event was a performance by Ashely of Happy Feet, who sang “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten to an enthusiastic audience. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

The event, held at Harvester Arts, featured fabulous spring fashions and jewelry, crowned by gorgeous hairstyles and makeup by Charisma – Inner Beauty. We recruited mother and daughter teams to walk down the runway together, showing off their new looks, while Jill D. Miller, the Headmistress of the Finishing School for Modern Women shared stories with the audience of our family’s adventures together.

A big thank you to our other sponsors, the Finishing School for Modern Women, Charisma – Inner Beauty and Harvester Arts. Three cheers for our models, who worked the catwalk with attitude and style. We appreciate the local businesses that donated raffle prized for the event: Hatman Jack’s, Charisma Inner Beauty, Spice Merchant, Planet Hair, and Skin Essentials. 

Of course, we couldn’t have done it without the hard work of our staff. Special kudos to our Shannon, the director of our show, whose organization and leadership skills kept everything running perfectly.

Finally, thanks to everyone who came out and supported our event. We can’t wait to do it again next year!

Wichita Flag 
One of the symbols of Wichita we love is the official flag of the City of Wichita! It’s red, white and blue and has been the symbol of Wichita for over 80 years.

Three red and three white rays alternate from an off-center blue sun. The rays are the path of freedom to come and go as one pleases. The blue disc represents happiness, contentment. The white circle, stitched into the blue sun, with four sets of three parallel rays emanating from the circle’s principal axis represents the Indian symbol for “hogan,” meaning permanent home.

Looking for a symbol to represent pride in our community, the American Legion ran a city flag design contest in 1937, with cash prizes provided by the Wichita Rotary Club. Over 100 entries were submitted, and judged by a panel of three artists. Mural artist Cecil McAlister, with a design based on Indian symbolism, was named the winner, and received a cash prize of $40. It was accepted by proclamation on June 14, 1937, Flag Day.

The winning design was a complex sewing challenge for west-side seamstress Mary J. Harper. Wichita’s Betsy Ross, as she was then styled, spent an entire day piecing together the design of Indian emblems from red, white and blue silk. She made a total of six flags originally.

The first one flew from the City Hall flagstaff at 204 S. Main on July 23, 1937. None of the originals are known to survive, but their descendants fly outside Century II and City Hall everyday.

Besides being flown at municipal buildings, the popular banner has recently become a symbol of the community’s resurgence of pride, and can be seen in many murals around town. It’s a tangible reminder of our connection to each other and to our home.
