FC Co-Pres Morgan Daniel tells us about Cavé on the Runway, and teacher makeovers!
The theme of the fashion show was self-expression. We had a team of members come up with ideas which they pitched to the rest of the club. We decided to call the show “Cavé on the Runway,” Cavé meaning express yourself, in Latin.
There were four different scenes with clothes, among the others that included performances and teacher makeovers. There was an African wear scene and then collections that were designed by students—Varsitée Club, Inferno/Corrupted Minds, and Off-Brand.
The clothes used in the African scene were borrowed from one of the models who has an African background. The other clothes were made using hoodies and t-shirts from our sponsor, Ms. Guiteau’s Graphic Design class. For the teacher makeovers, we invited a stylist to provide her services to give the selected teachers a 180 on their look!
We had about 20 models. To get them to sign up, we made posters promoting the auditions and hung them in the elevators and high traffic areas around school. The sign up sheets were all in the school store and those interested came during their lunch period and signed up.
We promoted the show the same way we did auditions, with posters. There were also various announcements in the morning and members promoted on social media and word of mouth.
My favorite part was definitely the rehearsals! We got to see a rundown of the show after weeks and weeks of planning, and it was rewarding to see everyone’s visions and ideas come to life.
One of the challenges was determining a date to have the show. We had many breaks during the school year and not everyone was able to meet so we had to change the date of the show a couple times
Since Elle and I are seniors and will be graduating, we hope to see another fashion show even bigger than one we had this year! We both wish the club and the new officers good luck, because there are many talented students at North Atlanta who have a great vision.
