Hundreds of young girls from all over Iowa are expected to attend a fashion show in Des Moines tomorrow (Sunday) which features clothes from fictional book characters out of our nation’s past. The books in “The American Girl” series focus on young women during different periods of time over the past century. Aimee Fisher is helping organize the 8th annual American Girl Fashion Show.Fisher says the books are very popular with girls between ages eight and eleven. She’s expecting about 15-hundred young ladies, their mothers and their grandmothers, to turn out for the show.About 60 young girls from Iowa have been chosen to model the clothes from bygone eras. Fisher says she’s had people calling requesting modeling positions for six months already. She says all of the clothes that’ll be modeled are based on the book series, which goes back about a hundred years in U.S. history.There are actually three fashion shows Sunday at 11:30 AM and at 3 and 6:30 P.M. at the Des Moines Marriott. Proceeds go to the Child Life Therapy Department at Blank Children’s Hospital.
