Junior Girls Registration 2015 is Still Going On!
Last year was a history-making and another phenomenal year for the girls! We designed and launched our first ever “Junior Girls International Festival” which was a huge success!! Girls were mentored by two of Charleston’s finest fashion designers, Regina Ileta and Noelle Stanley, who taught girls how to design International outfits for their doll babies which they showcased in a Fashion Show, Red Carpet Walk, and Photo Shoot. At the Festival, girls also enjoyed tasty International foods, learned about various countries and so much more. We would like to give a Special Thanks to the Art Institute of Charleston for helping us provide such a wonderful experience for the girls. We were so excited that girls from Colleton County School District participated for the first time in our programs. This year promises to be one of the most explosive years for the girls yet. This year, we are offering over 50 FREE program events for girls around the lowcountry! We are going for the Guinness Book of World Records this year!!!
