"I've showcased Ronda's Closet dresses for the last few years," Walker-Bowen said.
The guys who participate in the fashion show wear tuxedoes borrowed from Estep's in downtown Charleston and Men's Wearhouse on Corridor G.
On a recent day, several Sissonville High girls selected gowns at Ronda's Closet to be worn in the fashion show.
"The dresses are high quality and the selection is wide," Tiffany Dingee said.
"There are a lot of pretty gowns and you have fun with your friends trying them on," Cheyanne Spears said.
Kimberly Middleton encourages girls to look there for gowns.
"These are really nice dresses," she said. "Bring friends, have fun and get some really pretty dresses."
Bethany Lambert said the upcoming fashion show at her school will be fun because she can have a good time on stage in a relaxed atmosphere with her friends. She also recommends Ronda's Closet for prom gown shopping.
Those who donate gowns know they go for a good cause and those who wear them can save hard-earned cash.
Aside from gowns, donations of shoes and accessories are appreciated, Black said. Also, these donations may be tax-deductible with paperwork available upon request.
Ronda's Closet opens to the public on Feb. 16 and will remain open each Saturday through prom season. Hours will be 10 a.m. to noon. Aldersgate United Methodist, 6823 Sissonville Drive, is located north of Sissonville High School.
