CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The Vintage Now Fashion Show will makes it comeback after the pandemic put the fundraiser on pause.

“We take vintage clothes and mix it with modern, so it’s a little bit of everything,” said Deb Boyer Maevers, director of Vintage Now.

For the return of the fashion show fundraiser, Maevers and her team will bring 100 years of fashion, music and world events to life with “A Tale of Time.”

“We had a little more time to make it fabulous, but it was odd not to have a show last year after 12 years,” Maevers said.

All proceeds from the event benefits the Safe House of Southeast Missouri.

Jessica Hill, executive director of the Safehouse, said not having the show was a huge loss for them.

“In 2019, our proceeds after expenses were $110,000. In 2020, we receive about $50,000,” Hill said.

However, she said they are more people are interested this year than ever before.

“We have already sold 1,300 tickets,” Hill said.

With hopes to fill out the Show Me Center with guests, 150 people are volunteering. Some will dance, sing and model.

“These ladies have been showing up once a week for 2 hours every single week, and then they are also doing extra rehearsals,” said Lakrisha Moore, talent director.

Moore said there will be performances for each decade dating back to the 1920s. This year’s show will be more interactive than ever before.

“I’m really excited and I think it’s going to be an awesome show,” Moore said.

When Maevers was asked what her hopes are for this year’s show, she said she plans to give hope to victims of abuse.

“Even if it’s just one person that benefits from our show and give them a new future free of abuse, we’ve done a great job,” Maevers said.

The Vintage Now Fashion Show will be held on Saturday, October 9 at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.

Tickets are on sale at Pastimes Antiques, Safe House for Southeast Missouri Thrift store, before the at show at the Show Me Center or online here.
