H ealth Club

A Saks Fifth Avenue fashion
show, luncheon and boutiques
highlighted the 1987 Spring Fantasy
by the Women's Health Club of the
Jewish Community Center (JCC).
Carol Eisenshtadt, chairperson of
the day, explained that this annual
event is now in its seventh year. "It
started out with 40 and now we have
400." Proceeds from the event help
support the JCC "Send a Kid to
Camp" project.
More than 30 local craftsmen
and artisans displayed and sold their
wares in the Center lobby. Boutiques
ranged from handmade clothes to
jewelry and pottery. Danika, designs
in stained glass, sold decorative boxes
made of Roman glass found near the
Sea of Galilee. Reflections by Karin
sold soft sculptured photo albums for
all occasions.
After a healthy, low-calorie lunch
of salad and fruit, some patrons were
recipients of raffle prizes. The grand
prize was a cruise for two donated by
The Cruise Society, Inc. Regina Litt
was delighted after winning the prize.
"I could use it," she exclaimed.

The fashion show began with a

Roman columns. Designers Armani
and Ungaro led the show, previewing
the new short lengths. However, both
short and long hemlines were
fashionable. The clothes were all col-
ors, ranging from traditional white to
wild prints.
"We have the hottest suits under
the sun, guaranteed to get rave
reviews and makes waves," said
Cheryl Hall, fashion director at Saks
Fifth Avenue, Troy. One blue faux
snakeskin suit had a matching
sarong. Another unique suit had a
silver metallic hipband over a printed
The evening clothes sparkled like
champagne, featuring beads, pearls
and sequins. In the finale, the model
wore a white beaded dress with a
wreath of rhinestoneson her forehead
and a white marabou boa.
Sylvia Zukin, director of the
Women's Health Club, marveled at
the success of the luncheon. "The
energy of the Women's Health Club
board put this together today." ❑
