Model schoolgirls, proud parents, friends and fashionistas kicked off the holiday season in style.

“This event offers us the opportunity to fulfill the dream of a Catholic education for deserving students through our San Miguel Fund,” said principal Kevin Beirne, who this year showed his support by serving as a master of ceremonies. .

Christmas-themed fashion extravaganza is a much anticipated Montini tradition. The show included trendy and casual attire, formal wear, furs and sparkling evening gowns, all fashioned by young, old and Montini alumni and all for a good cause, for the benefit of Montini’s San Miguel Fund.
