A week of fashion programming at Porter Library

A showcase courtesy of costume designer Charlotte Yetman will be on display at Westlake Porter Public Library through April 30.

Have you seen 2017’s new spring fashion trends? One shoulder split shirt tops, shirtdresses with graphic lines, oversize shapes with extended sleeves, flat form shoes, and navel-grazing pendants are on the runways this year. Fun styles for all ages, fashion provides a way to artfully explore your personal expression. The first week of May is a nod to this creative industry at Westlake Porter Public Library. Whether you dream of being a designer, or just need inspiration to freshen your closet, we have the right program for you.

Our popular adult coloring program will focus on fashion on May 3 at 2:00 p.m. All supplies are provided. Why not drop in to color and relax and explore your sense of style?

Teens will be making duct tape accessories on May 3 at 3:30 p.m. We’ll bring the colorful tape and instructions. You bring your friends.

We are certain you won’t want to miss costume designer Charlotte Yetman’s behind-the-scenes theatrical costuming presentation on May 3 at 7:00 p.m. From historical eras to powerful characters, the fashion design behind these costumes for the stage is some of the best in the business! A theatre professor and resident costume designer at Baldwin Wallace University, Charlotte will bring sample costumes. The sneak peek showcase in the library lobby offers a display preview through April 30.

Local fashion designer Dru Christine is coming to WPPL on May 4 at 7:00 p.m. Feel frustrated by your closet? Wish you had a better sense of style? Need ideas to make the things in your closet work together? This program is for you! Find the inner fashionista that's been hiding. Great for all ages, women and men. Dru Christine will provide a guide in fashion, exploring your personal style, fit, color and more.

On May 6 at 1:00 p.m. Kelly Velikonya Patel, store manager at Kate Spade Beachwood, will talk about her experiences working at Fashion Week in New York and Miami and Cleveland. She promises to highlight current fashion trends as she shares her fashionable experiences.

Please remember that you don’t have to be a fashionista to embrace the new spring styles. We hope you will join us for one or all of these wonderful presentations. Call 440-871-2600 to register, or sign up on our website at westlakelibrary.org
