Eliot School Fashion Show

Doors open at 7:30 PM
First Church UU, 6 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain MA
Tickets $10 at the door or at

Celebrate Fall Fashion week with a community flair. The Eliot School in Jamaica Plain fetes lead sewing teacher Carol Price with an array of her sophisticated designs and exotic prints. Her students will also show their work. The Fashion Show brings the community together, featuring local models and businesses. Local hat purveyor Salmagundi will contribute hats and accessories.

The Fashion Show builds on the successes of the Sewing and Fiber Arts Department this year at the Eliot School, which offers classes for all ages at its Jamaica Plain schoolhouse. Carol Price grew up in Dorchester and learned to sew at age 8 from her dad, a tailor. Thin and tall, she excelled at altering, then creating her own clothes. She has taught at the Eliot School since 2005.

What sets her apart from this year’s Fashion Week designers? “I like to say that the ability to sew empowers me to express my individuality. Being able to sew frees me from the mainstream.” Ms. Price designs apparel, handbags, drapes, pillows and dolls.

This event is sponsored by The Boston Foundation through its Action Fund. A reception will follow next door at the Eliot School of Fine and Applied Arts, 24 Eliot Street, with live jazz by The Handy Experience. Refreshments will be served.
