The red carpets were rolled out, the lights were twinkling, and Wareham High School’s third annual fashion show was ready to begin.
On Thursday 20 January, friends and families gathered in Wareham High School’s coffee shop to see the haute couture made by Fashion Marketing and Project Management students during the first semester.
“There has been a lot of work in that,” he said Ava St. Germaine, a young woman.
A total of 50 students from both Fashion Marketing and Project Management classes were involved. The Fashion Marketing class took care of the choice of clothes and models, while the Project Management class took care of the logistics of the fashion show.
But the classes didn’t work by themselves – the parade wouldn’t have happened without the help of the Wareham DECA students, the students said.
“DECA students volunteer their time for whatever models need,” said Chloe Hogan, DECA senior president.
Hogan said the students hope to expand the show next year.
“I hope to return to the auditorium next year,” said Hogan. She also wants to create more categories and engage students more.
“I just want to thank all the students who helped put this together,” said St. Germaine.
Hogan also thanked Lisa Cunha, DECA consultant, who teaches in both classes.
“He goes above and beyond for everything and all of his students,” Hogan said.
