Come one, come all, to Southern Lehigh’s very own fashion show, hosted by the Fashion Club. Promise yourself a fun experience by getting right to the tux of the matter by checking out the season’s latest styles for Southern Lehigh’s upcoming prom.

“I’m very excited about the event,” Fashion Club adviser and French teacher Mrs. Kaytlyn Byers said. “I’m excited to see it work out beautifully. We’ve been working really hard on it for six months.”

The fashion show will be taking place on March 8 at 7:00 pm in the cafeteria and will last for about an hour. The goal of the event is to raise money for this year’s prom at Steel Stacks. Tickets are three dollars, with special VIP tickets getting you closer to the runway while costing five dollars.

“I love looking at prom dresses and I don’t know the next time that I’ll be walking in a fashion show,” senior model Lauren Wolfe said. “Also, Madame [Byers] asked me, and you can’t say no to Madame [Byers].”

The fashion show will showcase prom dresses provided by All Things Bridal, and tuxedos from Fisher’s Tuxedos. Makeup will be done by the New Attitude salon.

“I’m super excited, I think that this is more than I thought we’d ever get to do,” Fashion Club president Erin Bauer said. “We’d always hoped we’d get to do a fashion show.”

The models will either be walking, dancing, or performing skits while they showcase the clothing. All thirty-four of the models are upperclassmen, both boys and girls. Chris Smith, the host, will also announce the brand, style, and other information about the dresses and tuxedos on display.

“I’m really excited about it, honestly, because it’s just a fun way to hang out with my friends and help out Fashion Club,” junior model Izzy Diaz said. ”I think it will be highly enjoyable, for I Iove prom dresses and dressing up, and it would just be fun.”

Not only will there be entertainment for the eyes, but also for the tastebuds. A bake sale will be held during the show. Students will also DJ during the event.

Sophomore Danielle Alpert came up with the idea for the fashion show, and approached Fashion Club with the idea six months ago.

“I am excited but I’m also a little stressed because there’s so much I have to do that is a lot more than I thought there would be,” Alpert said, “but now that we’re getting closer I feel a little more confident in what’s going on.”

Madame Byers, the Fashion Club, and Alpert have all been working hard to put together a fashion show that everyone can hopefully appreciate.

“I would like to see the show bring all the students together and enjoy fashion as a school,” Byers said.
