About 50 students in Fairfield Ludlowe High School's fashion-design program will model clothing they made during a fashion show Wednesday evening, May 29, at the school.
The Ludlowe Vogue Fashion Show is planned at 7:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. Admission is $1, and all proceeds will go to Fairfield's Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, show organizers said.
Each student typically makes three or four pieces, so an estimated 150 to 200 garments will be modeled during the show, according to Claire Mepyans, a sophomore in the program who is handling publicity for the show.
Ludlowe offers four fashion-design courses in which students progress from using commercial patterns in the first-year course to designing their own three-piece collections in the fourth year, Mepyans said.
Wednesday evening's show will feature students in grades nine through 12 modeling their own creations. The theme of this year's show, "Ludlowe Vogue," stems from students taking inspiration from Vogue magazine through the years.
