Little Girls strut their American Girl Stuff

The Junior League of Philadelphia hosted an American Girl Fashion Show. Approximately 150 girls were modeling their outfits and their dolls on the catwalk.

“We’re really excited about it—American Girl is great company to work with,” Morgan said. “They do a lot of community service … and they’re all about empowering girls and teaching girls about history and community service … and we thought they were a natural fit for us given our lengthy involvement in community service in the Philadelphia area.”

The evening was filled with catwalks, silver, and fine china. What a combination! See the complete story and photos in Amanda Mahnke’s story in the Tredyffrin-Easttown Patch.

If you or your little girl are interested in competing in next year’s fashion show, it’s good to know that the article says contestants were selected first-come-first-serve based on how much they looked like their selected American Girl doll! So, that may be a key to getting you into next year’s show. Wouldn’t that be cool?
