Gail's Harley-Davidson Fall Fashion Show and 1st Birthday Party

Written by  November 30, 2005

The latest fashions from Harley-Davidson’s extensive apparel line were modeled during the evening of Thursday, November 3rd, at Gail’s Harley-Davidson in Grandview, Missouri. The fashion show doubled as a birthday party celebrating the first year of the business at its present location. Prior to the show, guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres from Taylor Made Catering and had the opportunity to sample wines from Bruce Cohn’s Olive Hill Estate Vineyards. Bruce, long-time manager of the Doobie Brothers, was present to pour and to talk about his marvelous wines. Joining Bruce was Slacker from 99.7KY served as narrator for the show. Gail is proud of the fact that the models, more than thirty in all, were store employees and their children. Shelly Fairchild’s “Ride” set the beat for the first part of the show, featuring leather jackets and chaps. Next, Harley wear for children was energetically modeled, accompanied by “Are You Gonna Be My Girl?” by Jet. Fashions shown to the tune of Trace Adkins’ “Chrome” featured sweatshirts, fleeces, and even boxers. More great Harley apparel was shown to the music of Steve Miller’s “Fly Like an Eagle” and the Doobie Brothers’ “Rockin’ Down the Highway” in recognition of Gail’s special guests. For the finale, fashions were a bit more formal and the models’ style more elegant. To fit the mood, the music was “Christmas Eve (Sarajevo)” by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

As the event concluded, Gail thanked the special guests, models, attendees, and especially Dee Austin who had planned and coordinated the event. It was a fun evening for all, and Dee has promised an even bigger and better show for next year’s Spring fashions.
