Grads present fashion show

Highland Secondary School’s graduating class of 2014 will present its annual fashion show on Monday, April 14 at 7 p.m. at the Highland Secondary gymnasium.

This year’s theme is Music through the Ages. To accompany the music, grads will model period costumes from the turn of the 20th century through to present day.

Imagine Downton Abbey, flapper girls, wartime swing through to 1960s beach music, disco and modern-day rap — this show will have it all.

The students have had amazing support from the community and local retailers, with Courtenay Little Theatre and Courtenay Costume Rentals providing period costumes, and The Ski & Surf Shop, Silhouette Theatre and Dance Shop, JACK’D Clothing, Alberni Outpost, Cherry Wine, Trousers, Winners, Carosel Fashions and Jim’s Clothes Closet providing clothing from the modern era.

Plan to arrive early, as grads and parents will host a bazaar and raffle baskets, again generously donated by community retailers.  Guests will be entertained throughout the evening with musical and dance performances, with special guests Jesse Turnbull and Blind Ambition performing.

All are welcome to attend. Tickets are available from the school. Tickets will also be available at the door.
