White Heat doesn't look a day over snowy and steep, but this legendary ski trail turns 25 this season at Sunday River. What better way to pay tribute to the longest steepest widest lift-serviced expert trail in the East than a white hot fashion show depicting ski styles from the 80s to today. This Saturday Jan 25, the Foggy Goggle will become a fashionable cat walk at 9pm, admission is free (must be 21+) but donations are encouraged to benefit the Sunday River Charitable Fund. This is the 2nd annual Sunday River fashion show, last year's theme "Fire and Ice."
The Foggy Goggle's White Heat Fashion Show will feature Boston's top models and photographer, and Sunday River's own Rogue Angels and Dream Makers, with DJ Brek.One providing dance party tunes. Sporty gals and guys will take to podiums in stylish ski and board wear, from current to vintage (from Boston's SoWa Vintage Market) with a dash of swim wear and après ski furs from Sarian Designs in Newton. Last year's bikinis made of Sunday River trail maps were a hit, so go see what event organizer Kathy Benharris has up her sleeve. She's a fashion obsessed skier who wore a neon Nevica one-piece down White Heat the year it opened, so nothing is Outer Limits (Killington ski trail joke).
While Sunday River and fashion aren't exactly synonymous, The Foggy Goggle will be fashion central this Saturday for the White Heat Fashion Show. See you on the slopes.
