CORUNNA — Outfits from the Civil War era through the 1980s were on display Wednesday night during the city’s vintage fashion show.

The event was part of the year-long sesquicentennial celebration, with men and women of all ages taking to the runway at the Community Center in McCurdy Park.

Merilee Lawson organized the vintage fashion show and served as master of ceremony for the evening.

“A group of us always had the idea in our mind of wanting to have a vintage fashion show, mainly because of the historical village and the history in the city of Corunna,” Lawson said. “It evolved and got bigger and bigger. In the beginning we though ‘how are we doing to get models?’ But people just started coming out of the woodwork on us, and they all have been so excited about it. We’ve had so many clothes donated.”

More than 40 models took part in the show, with outfits being provided by the Corunna Historical Village, as well as via donation from individuals in the community.
