Qualicum Beach fashionista takes show on road

Fashion has never been as important as it is now - and Port Alberni is about to get a big taste

Fashion has always been a focus in civilization, but perhaps never more so than in the last 100 years. Merlyn Patten of Qualicum Beach will bring proof to the Alberni Valley next month with a special fundraising show, 100 years of fashion.

The show is on April 21.

People are encouraged to wear their own hats to win a prize. The event will raise money for the Beta Sigma Phi’s legacy,  which helps fund children’s programs at the Albernia Valley Museum.
