Shire City Sanctuary Throws A Fantastic February Frolic

Amy Krzanik reports from Pittsfield. As part of this year’s 10x10 Upstreet Arts Festival, Shire City Sanctuary held a February Frolic event on Valentine’s Day, February 14. The Berkshire Historical Society’s “revealing” lingerie parade of 10 women in 10 outfits from 10 eras kicked off the evening’s festivities. The historical fashion show, designed by Joan Degusto and staged by BHS’s Director of Communications J. Peter Bergman, coincides with the Historical Society’s latest exhibit at Arrowhead – Close to the Skin: A Revealing Look at Lingerie – on display through May 3. The show was followed by dinner downstairs, and, later on, a dance party with DJ BFG. Above, model and Arrohead farm manager Kristen Laney, emcee Joan Degusto and model Fianna Toolan.
