Last night, Storybook Studios held the First Annual Fearless Spirit Fashion Show and Charity Event. What an amazing evening! This event was the graduation of the Fearless Spirit Model Crew. They modeled fearless fashions created by Casey Scalf, owner and photographer of Storybook Studios.
This was the culmination of a 6 month process of building the self-esteem of 9 middle school and high school teen girls, who have been bullied and who have been struggling with their self-esteem. The process proves to them, through professional, creative and fun photography, how beautiful and unique they truly are. With this event, they were challenged to be truly fearless and walk the runway!
I am so proud of all of them. They walked that runway with head high and shoulders back. Proud of who they are.
Ticket sales went to help support the charity 'To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA)', a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness for people who are struggling with mental health issues like depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. We raised more than $550! https://give.twloha.com/team/257164
Thanks to everyone coming out and supporting this amazing group of girls and this amazing charity!
Special thanks to our sponsors. We could not have done it without you!
