Grad fashion show this Friday at LCS

Fashion Show: Lake Cowichan's 2014 grad class to host fashion show and raise funds for local boy with cystic fibrosis

Lake Cowichan School’s 2014 Grade 12 grad class is hosting a fashion show this Friday.

The show kicks off at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

It is $4 minimum donation to get in, with everyone welcome to attend, and all the funds are going to a good cause.

“One of our fellow grads John Hieta needs  a lung transplant and we’re giving all the funds to his family who have already started raising money for him,” said 2014 grad Carmen Brooks who has organized the entire event with help from a few friends. “I’ve been organizing this for two months. We have about 13 or 14 grads in the show and we’ll also be playing games with the audience as well as having a concession.”

The school’s gym will feature a long stage setting the perfect catwalk platform for the evening.

The show will have the grads show off many clothes from numerous local stores and stylists including Scarlett’s, Fit for a Princess, Neiser Sales and Service and Copper Lane.

“We’re going to start the evening off with Scarlett’s and Fit for a Princess and then we’ll probably do Neiser’s and have an intermission. Then we’ll do Copper Lane and all of our hair is getting done by Heads or Nails, Remedy, and Studio 87.”

But after the conclusion of Copper Lane’s fashion, the show is not finished there.

“Then we’re going to have our finale where the grads have to wear anything that’s not clothes as part of their clothing. So you’ll see garbage bag dresses, newspapers, space blankets, party decorations, a lot of pretty cool things.”

Lake Cowichan School has also loaned the grad class money to decorate the gym for the evening.

Brooks finished by saying she’s hoping for a crowd of “50 to 100 people” and Lauren Frost will be emcee for the evening.
