Fashion Show! Fiesta Ole Style!

Let’s take an ocean full of color…add in a lake full of bling…include Fiesta royalty…medals…television and radio personalities…newspaper editors…city employees…county judges… beautiful women…and just a tad more color and you have set sail with the tenth annual Fiesta Ole Fashion Show sponsored by the Pan American League of San Antonio!

“This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Herlinda Sifuentes, Pan American League President.  “Our group began in 1947 when a city nurse was motivated to open a clinic in the area we now call Edgewood.  She saw a need among lower income residents for good medical care.”  They began by playing canasta tournaments and with garage sales, but through the years the group has narrowed their social work down to two main fundraisers.  “We fund many needs in a variety of areas including continuing the health clinic and providing scholarships,” she said.

The first Fiesta fashion show of 2012 included styles by San Antonio’s own Graciela from her boutique Graciela’s at the Yard on McCullough. Held at the beautiful Oak Hills Country Club, the show was fun, joyful, over-the-top and definitely FIESTA!  It was one event where the audience was as decked out as the fashionistas on the runway!  I hope you enjoy the photos in the link below!  Great job to everyone who worked on this event!
