Catala’s “Fall Into Fashion” Show

On Saturday, Sept. 23rd, Catala Facial Retreat and Spa hosted a “Fall into Fashion” show on the parking lot in front of the shop and Fireside Bar and Grill in the New Melle Town Square. Despite near record heat, spectators relaxed under pop up tents enjoying drink and lunch specials from Fireside, and complimentary chips and salsa and $5 Margaritas from Maracas Mexican Restaurant. Each of the six volunteer models showcased pretty fall outfits as proprietor, Carla Skouby Brakensiek, explained and demonstrated various looks that could be achieved by switching out accessories or adding jackets, ponchos, shawls, etc.

Carla thanked everyone who attended, and said, “Thank you to the amazing models! Thank you to Rita Klos (Hair Care by Rita) for doing the models’ hair. Thank you Fireside Bar & Grill & Maracas Mexican Family Restaurant! It was a wonderful day filled with wonderful people! Thank you for your support & always making Catala a part of your day.”
