Recently two organizations in the Wildwoods held their annual fashion shows with fall and winter clothes as the center of attention.

Beth Judah Temple on Pacific Avenue in Wildwood had its show at the Temple and more than 70 members and friends came out for a sunny autumn day. At this show the clothes were provided by “Bellanova” of Stone Harbor under the eye of owner Cathy Schaeffer and her assistants. The models were accessorized by the staff, who also brought stock from the store to sell.

Before that, a luncheon was held at “The Wharf” restaurant where members of the Wildwood Civic Club gathered and Queen Oceania and her court were chosen. This is always a moment of high drama.  This year’s queen is Grace Lederer of North Wildwood, and her court consists of Princess Shelby Thornton and Princess Dinae DeMayo. Shelby Thornton was Queen Oceania last year and she brought along her mom Tracey and grandmother Lola Borden. Grace Lederer, the new “queen,” was with her mom Cathryn, and Princess Dinae had her mom Danielle join her for the lunch.
