ST. PETERSBURG – There’s nothing like a kaleidoscopic fashion show showcasing mothers from the south St. Pete community. The Women’s Ministry of Greater Mt. Zion AME Church pulled out all the stops May 11, just one day prior to celebrating one of the most important persons in our lives–our mothers.
A tapestry of rainbow hues strutted down a makeshift runway as mistress of ceremony Phyllis Dorsey and style commentator Dierdre Downing-Jackson presided over the fashion show. The program included women and children of all ages who appeared in a total of five scenes: Mothers of all ages, women who are survivors, children are our future, wisdom walkers and the finale.
Jawan George, a teenager who survived open heart surgery, read the poem “When God’s at the Helm,” and a banquet of food was served and enjoyed by all.
