Angie and Bartee Productions, the City of Daytona Beach and F.R.E.S.H. Book Festivals collaborated to bring awareness to alopecia, a type of hair loss, on Saturday at the Bold, Beautiful & Bald Beauty Bazaar.

The event took place at the Yvonne Scarlett Golden Cultural & Educational Center,1000 Vine St., Daytona Beach.

Cancer survivors also were honored during the bazaar in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

A highlight was a fashion show with clothes provided by Klassy Koutoure in Orange City, which specializes in fashions for full-figured women.

The event was originally supposed to be held last month, which was National Alopecia Awareness Month.

Organizer Angie Bee, a local evangelist, said she wanted to bring an event to the area where “other Alopecians like myself can shop for wigs, try makeup, enjoy music and a fashion show and shop, without feeling like the only bald woman in the room.’’
