With CCHS’s last annual fashion show quickly approaching in just a few short months, model tryouts were held this week to determine who will be in the show displaying the outfits that the Level 2 Fashion Marketing class has put together.
Tryouts were held after school from October 21 through October 24.
“We were asked to bring high heels if you were a girl, but if not you didn’t have to bring anything to the tryouts,” sophomore Jordan Winick said. “As soon as you arrived, you were given a number. You signed in with your name, phone number and email. When your number was called, you would go into the hallway and would walk down a marked path. It was lined [with] duct tape and it had the spots for you to stop and pose.”
The tryouts consisted of walking as well as posing to music picked by the judges. The modeling committee then chose the models based on not only their overall look and walk, but the confidence they exuded as well.
“I can’t wait to see everyone’s creativity this year.”
“I’ve always enjoyed modeling and getting my picture taken so I thought this would be a fun opportunity for me,” Winick said. “I enjoyed the auditioning process. I also model for the fashion show annually at the Young At Art Museum, so I have some experience in the field. I hope I get selected as [a] model.”
Partnerships between clubs have once again been formed to make the event especially unforgettable. Both Fashion Club and Art Club are working together this year to bring CCHS a unique show, hoping to showcase their art in a magnificent way that leaves the audience in awe for the last time.
“This year’s theme is recycling through the ages, [with] years specifically being ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and now. I believe a little bit of the future as well,” junior Sadie Robinson said. “Without giving too much away, we are leaning towards a stiffer subject. Art Club usually decorates the events and paints clothes for the runway. Fashion Club runs the whole show while also rocking the runway. I can’t wait to see everyone’s creativity this year.”
Fashion Club’s sponsor Linda Snider’s retirement at the end of this school year puts the pressure on students participating and organizing this year’s show to make sure that the final one is the best yet. Models and designs are expected to be top-notch. The show is set for February and will be a sight to see before CCHS’s annual fashion shows are put to rest.
