Two hundred people in attendance!
FC President Hannah Shelton put on a fashion show at Verrado High School in Litchfield Park, Arizona, with an audience of over 200!
Tell us about your fashion show: The fashion show consisted of ten collections done by students individually or in a group of two, inspired by anything they wanted. Each one was completely different but amazing. Each collection had about 5-10 looks. The show took place in our school’s auditorium last Friday with an attendance of over 200 people.
How did you go about getting your models to sign up? Our club held two model open calls. As a club, we decided who was going to model for whom. To keep it diverse, we made sure each model was only in two collections, at the most.
How did you promote the show? We made several ads and posted them on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. Every club member did this! We also had it featured in our school’s weekly video announcement.
Where did you get the clothes? Every designer was responsible for getting their own clothes. Most designers purchased their clothes from local thrift shops and used some of their own.
What did you like the most the experience? Every collection was unique and inspired by something different. You could see the designer’s personality in their collection.
What were the challenges? It was challenging making sure that about 50 models knew the model walk on stage exactly. We wanted the show to be absolutely perfect, and it was!
Anything else you’d like to share? Fashion Clubs should definitely do a fashion show—it’s a lot of work, but an amazing experience!
