Creating the Fashion Show

On March 6, the night before the fashion show, the UCM Fashion Promotion and Visual Merchandising class got the models together to practice for the show. The class showed the models how and where to walk. The models were able to practice with the music to get the timing of their walks down. A photographer came to the dress rehearsal to take pictures of the models practicing. The models for the show got the option to keep the dress they wore for a donation of canned goods, the rest of the dresses were available in the Cinderella Dress Exchange after the fashion show.

The fashion show took place on the afternoon of March 7. All of the models showed up before the show to go through a final walk through. The girls were all so nervous and excited for the show to begin. After the walk through, the models went backstage to put on their dresses and get their hair and make-up fixed. When the girls were ready, they received beautiful corsages donated by Woods Floral. The male model received a boutonniere that matched his tux. Once the show started, there was nothing but joy backstage. The model's faces lit up when they hit the runway! The models had a great time and the fashion show really boosted some of the girl's confidence levels. The fashion show was a great success as you can see by the picture below!
