The Queen of Diamonds II Driver, Test Drove a New Straightway
New Canaan, CT. (May 12, 2018): Sarah Edwards hung up her helmet and traded in her firesuit all for good reason. This past weekend Sarah walked the runway in the LiveGirl + Hadley Pollet Fashion Show which took place at the Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan, CT. The Fashion show was a fundraiser for the non-profit organization LiveGirl and featured the fashion designs of local designer Hadey Pollet. LiveGirl’s mission is to empower young girls and women through development and mentoring, building self-confidence and fostering diversity. Sarah proudly supports the mission and opportunities LiveGirl contributes to the community and is proud to be a part of this organization.
“Believe it or not, walking the runway is just like a trip down the drag strip at 300MPH,” said Sarah Edwards. She explained, “The same thoughts ran through my head while walking the runway as they do making a pass in the Queen of Diamonds. Can I see the end of the runway? Being aware of the other women coming down the runway as you’re walking up, and then when it’s all over I thought to myself after three outfit changes and three struts, that was fast – this is just like a 5 second pass.”
