My favorite classes I took during high school were Fashion Design I & II. They were so much fun! I really loved making my own clothes and spending time with my friends. At the end of the year, we got to put on a fashion show, so I thought I'd share a few pics.
We were able to design clothes throughout the year and show them off during the fashion show, so these were all outfits I made.
I was supposed to have someone else model all of my designs, but the girl who was going to wear the prom dress had to cancel at the last minute, so I ended up tossing it on and walking the runway in my own show! Oh well. Gotta roll with the punches, right? I didn't even have heels on hand to wear with it, so it was dragging on the ground!
The striped dress is my favorite outfit I made all year, because it's something I'll definitely wear a lot. The white dress is perfect for the beach, so I can't wait to wear it there! I made the red dress for a friend of mine, so I'm going to pass it along to her. All of the models in the show did such a great job.
Here I am modeling the prom dress after the show ended. I like the way it turned out! I wanted it to look similar to the dress from the movie Cinderella. As it turns out, I didn't wear it to my actual prom because I ended up wearing a dress that belonged to my mom. This one was just for the fashion show.
Here's the one of my mom's that I wore to my Senior Prom:

I can't believe I even made it to prom because I wasn't planning on going. I did hair and makeup for my friends all day long to help them get ready and had a really full schedule, but decided to go at the last minute since it was my senior year. I'm glad I did!
Prepping for a Fashion Show
Getting back to the fashion show, it was a really good lesson about preparation. We had to create a program to hand out to the crowd, so I had to write up my bio and help assemble that. I also had to line up the models a few weeks in advance to make sure the clothes fit them and so they could practice a few times.
This was the first fashion show my school ever held, so we asked the tech theater team assemble a runway with lights and they did a great job! We also picked emcees and music to accompany each of the outfits. (I picked Taylor Swift for my part of the show, of course!)
It was a really fun experience and it's amazing how great teachers can really make a difference in their students lives! I'll never forget Ms. Diep and Ms. Mendietta for everything they taught me. They're the best! Everyone should be so lucky to have such great teachers.
Hope you're doing well! I just wanted to share a peek into my school life and some of the things I created this year, so I hope you liked it. 🙂 I'm excited that it's summertime!
