FC Advisor Angie Anaya tells us the story about their amazing fashion show fundraiser.
We caught up with Manteca High School FIDM Fashion Club Advisor Angie Anaya to get the story about their fabulous fashion show with 100+ models, 50 hair and make-up students, a VIP party, and 800+ guests. They raised over $4,000 to pay for their annual trip to FIDM’s DEBUT Runway Show!
How long have you been working on the fashion show? We began the project roughly around mid-January continuously worked on the event until the day of. After three months of planning and work, it finally paid off on March 3. In conjunction with the CTE Fashion Merchandising class at MUSD, it was rather a collaboration.
What was the best part of the planning of the show itself? The best part about planning was collaborating with different stores around our community and seeing all the latest fashion trends.
What was the theme of the show? Galaxy galore featuring spring fashions and student work.
How many looks did you have? Roughly 130 including students, teachers, and staff.
How did you promote it? Social media—Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter. Also, posters around all campuses in the MUSD district, flyers that we created, and school announcements.
Any advice for other Fashion Clubs planning a fashion show? Paying attention to details is extremely beneficial to the overall success of the production. Also being supportive, positive, professional, and calm is key. Avoid unnecessary drama. And, most importantly, be a strong leader with your voice and actions.
Anything else you’d like to share? Reach out to other clubs or classes to support your efforts. We had our CTE Careers in Law students provide security, the Culinary Arts students prepare food/desserts for our VIP event, and floral class create flower crowns for a few collections.
