MARBLE FALLS — Don’t be surprised if you feel a chill Friday, Nov. 3. It won’t be because of the weather.

The fashions at the Winter Wonderland Charity Fashion Show are guaranteed to freeze people in their tracks.

The event begins with shopping at 7 p.m. at Jolie on Main, 112 Main St.

Those attending can have their photographs taken on the red carpet in front of a wall covered in the logos of sponsors, businesses, and vendors before sitting down for the fashion show, which starts at 8 p.m. Wine will be provided by Jodi Copley of Indigo Cellars. Once the show wraps, gatherers can purchase any clothing that caught their eyes.

Tickets to the show are a $25 donation, and organizers ask that you purchase them in at

The money raised benefits Court Appointed Special Advocates of Central Texas and CASA of the Highland Lakes.

“We know CASA and CASA of the Highland Lakes are well supported by the community,” said Kim Chandler, owner of Stella Ella and producer of the fashion show. “That’s the preferred charity of the community. We have a heart for children and children with special needs.”

Ten local models will wear clothing from area boutiques, and that’s by design, too, Chandler said. She wants to be able to be an asset to the local merchants, vendors, and her community.

“I think it offers something for people who attend they’ll be able to purchase on site,” she said. “They’ll all have clothing for sale people can purchase right there if they want. This is about helping small businesses. It’s about the local retailers and community helping out.”

Besides, she added, who knows the fashion choices of Highland Lakes residents better than local boutique owners.

Chandler, who relocated to the Highland Lakes from California, had produced similar fashion shows there and saw firsthand how they could benefit people.

So she wanted to do the same here, she said.

“The community has been great at supporting this event, and the local retailers have been fantastic,” she said. “Our hope is to raise as much money for charity as we can.”
