High School Fashion Show Ideas

by Contributing Writer

Holding high school fashion shows has become a common trend nowadays. Teens are often particularly self-conscious, and knowing about popular fashion choices can give young people more confidence about their choices regarding their appearance. A fashion show is relatively easy to set up. With the help of local businesses, you can convert a normal high school fashion show into a fundraising event.

Charity Fashion Show

Having a fashion show is good way for kids in high school to raise money. Whatever the reason for holding the fundraiser, a fashion show is an easy way to attract other students as well as a number of parents. One idea is to have a benefit dinner with the fashion show. The school can increase the cost of attendance. Another idea is to auction off the clothes the models wear. You can ask local boutiques and shops to sponsor your fashion show. Although not necessary, you may create a theme for your fashion show that corresponds to the fundraising cause. For instance, if you are raising money for environmental protection projects, why not feature clothes made with biodegradable or recycled material?

Start-of-School Fashion Show

High school students often stress about what to wear to school. This concern heightens during the first few weeks of classes when students are particularly concerned about making good impressions. That is why a start-of-school fashion show can be a popular event among students, allowing them to model everyday wear to help other kids with their wardrobe choices. The clothes do not have to be overly intricate or expensive. The committee can select casual wear clothing that, chances are, are already in most students' closets. This kind of fashion show isn't just for girls, either. Male student models can be a big help for those guys who do not know what to wear to impress their crushes. Students may also model gym clothes, formal wear for special dances like homecoming, and other clothing students wear in the school year.

Before-the-Prom Fashion Show

The one event to which high school girls look forward more than any other is prom. However, many of them are clueless as to what to wear weeks before the event. A before-the-prom fashion show will help everyone know what is fashionably in for the season. Ask a local stylist to organize the fashion show, since an expert can suggest different types of prom dresses. The stylist can come up with not just modern prom gowns, but also vintage formal wear and dresses that are Goth-inspired. This will help ensure that each girl can find a dress or two that matches her personality in the fashion show.
