Students from Chelmsford High School’s Fashion and Retail Marketing classes hosted a fashion show at Bedford Children’s Center (BCC) on Tuesday. The event drew tens of people from the area to take in the new-found modeling talents of some of the BCC students.“This program was so well done, the students really hit a home run with outfit choice and implementation of the program” said Daisy Girifalco, owner of BCC.
Fashion and retail marketing classes explore the concepts of fashion and fun by together creating and developing a fashion show for the young “models” at Bedford Children’s Center. The Chelmsford high school class, which was developed and started this school year by Business Teacher Danielle Trouve, aims to give students hands-on experience working in the business of fashion and retail.
Each group of students from the class was paired with a family who volunteered their child to model an outfit picked out especially for them using the principles and concepts of fashion and design. The high school students set up and produced a mini fashion show for the school, where the young models were the stars. This lesson not only reinforced the concepts the high school students have learned in class about fashion, but the business end of production of a show and customer satisfaction, working with what can be the pickiest of customers- children! The theme of summer fun was incorporated into each of the 11 models outfits, while personally fitting their body shape, attitude and style.
“It’s part of our philosophy to support our community at large. Danielle has taught here for several years and having her bring her students here to work with her little students was so fun and everyone loved it!” said Heather Drummond, Program Director.
