Annual Fashion Show

Student Designer Line on StageThe annual Fashion Show is a showcase entirely produced and promoted by our students. This event serves as a platform for students to apply and synthesize crucial skills that are highly relevant to their future careers in many industries. By participating in the Fashion Show, students have the opportunity to develop and hone critical and creative thinking abilities, negotiation techniques, teamwork dynamics, delegation skills, and effective communication strategies.

Through collaboration with local businesses, technicians, and clubs, our students engage in a wide range of activities to bring the Fashion Show to life. They take charge of developing publicity and advertising campaigns, organizing fundraising initiatives, coordinating models, handling merchandising aspects, designing and constructing the stage and exhibition area, and curating music and choreography to deliver a captivating show.
