The planning of the school’s 14th Prom Fashion Show is in full swing, as model tryouts and stage designs are being creatively organized by the SPHS Key Club. Filled with glamorous gowns and tasteful music, last year’s Prom Fashion Show dazzled the crowd and benefited the March of Dimes Foundation. “The March of Dimes benefits mothers who have premature babies and is working towards preventing premature births and birth defects.”

Last year’s senior models lining up for a final picture as the show comes to a close. Behind the spotlight, the band played upbeat music as models walked down the runway. Joe Matthews, band member said, “It’s a really great experience to be able to play music and see how an audience reacts to how you play and how it sets the tone for the evening.”

Behind the curtains, long dresses sway as models rush to get in place for the walk of the night. The last touches of makeup and hair spray are applied while the band fine tunes their instruments for an evening of entertainment. Juniors Allison Chang and Virginia Garner run through the program a final time with the announcers, band and models, as the lights slowly dim.

Preparations for the show this year are in full swing, as Key Club contacts businesses, selects models, and organizes this year’s campaigns. At the forefront of planning the show are Allison Chang, a junior, and Virginia Babcock, a senior, who are both excited to see the event come together.

“Prom Fashion show is an event that Key Club hosts. We have roughly 24 girls and 12 guys who model dresses and tuxedos donated by several companies,” Chang said.

The event showcases beautifully made gowns donated by David’s Bridal and Men’s Warehouse as well as the picture perfect models that strut down the runway. Hair and makeup is all generously provided by Image Creators.

“It’s nice thing to see all the companies come together for such a great cause,” Chang said.

Show aesthetics are also taken into account, as models coordinate tuxedos and dresses with the decoration and theme of this year’s show.

“We all go down to David’s Bridal before the show, and we try on all the dresses and make sure they match up with the tuxedos so that they don’t clash,” Babcock said.

As the models strut down the runway, Vivian Flanagan, the annual announcer for the show, describes the dress and reveals fun facts about the models.

After the show, audience members can visit local vendors and learn about their services or browse through their products.

“Last year, we had Fabu Salon and Spa, Lularoe, some student-owned businesses, and other local organizations come during the show,” Chang said.  

Guillermo Avila, a senior, was asked to walk in the show this year and happily accepted the offer.

“I’m most excited about the show since it’s my first time doing this, and walk ‘fancy’ in front of other people and meet others who do the show,” Avila said.

Not only does attending the show go towards healthier lives for mothers in our community, but also participating in the show can be a lively experience.

“I helped out last year, and I thought it’d be really fun to hang out with people I don’t normally hang out with. When all the girls get to try on the [dresses] , it’s a really cool bonding experience.” ”

A new addition to this year’s fashion show are the teacher campaigns, which is a contest for teachers to walk in the show.

“Students can donate money in the name of the 3-5 teachers that we choose, and whichever teacher has the biggest turnout will walk down the aisle in a prom dress,” Babcock said.

There are plenty of ways to help put together the show: you can attend the Prom Fashion Show Key Club meetings, donate money for the teacher campaign or buy candy grams.

“During the week of the show, Key Club members will sell candy grams in the cafeteria and deliver them on the day of the show,” Chang said.

This year’s show is February 8th. Tickets are $10 and you can get them in the cafeteria two weeks prior to the show.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
