With visions of prom time dancing in their heads, the South Carroll Instrumental Boosters will host a Prom Fashion Show at 7 p.m. Jan. 26 at the South Carroll High School Performing Arts Theater. Deja Vu Boutique is collaborating with the group to showcase the latest in prom apparel for both young men and women.

"If you are going to a prom this spring, this is a must-see event. The fashion show is going to be a high-energy, exciting event where both the audience and models will have a blast seeing the coolest fashions and gearing up for an awesome, once-in-a-lifetime prom experience," said Joanne Sapp, Deja Vu Boutique owner.


The models will be students from local high schools. Those interested in being a model should stop by the boutique, at 204 S. Main St. in Mount Airy, as soon as possible.
