Four young girls in the TIMES NEWS area were among the girls on the stage of the eighth annual Lehigh Valley Junior League American Girl Fashion Show last weekend.

They were modeling fashions of yesterday and today, from day wear to sleepwear to special-occasion clothing.

Proceeds of the show benefitted programs of the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley.

Accompanied by commentary and music, the show at Lehigh University's Iacocca Hall on the Mountaintop Campus showed how clothing styles have changed reflecting history, culture and girls' individual styles, with contemporary "Just like You" outfits for older girls and "Bitty Baby" fashions for little ones.

Local girls taking part in the show were Devyn and Kira Hauser of Palmerton, daughters of Bill and Lisa Hauser; and Alexa Scheirer, daughter of Phil and Mindy Scheirer; and Sophia Coleman, daughter of Jason and Heather Coleman, all of Lehighton.
