CHS Fashion Show theme

This year, the Chatham PTO sponsored fashion was a whirlwind of fun for the audience and the graduating seniors of 2015. The show, which featured senior models, started with a performance by No Strings Attached, Chatham’s all girl a capella group, who performed slowed down versions of Britney Spear’s “Toxic” and “Beyonce’s Crazy in Love”.

Going with this year’s theme, March through the decade, students performed in period skits and donned clothing donated from local vendors and boutiques. Kate Beebe, a senior who performed in the show’s sixties skit, thought that dressing up was so much fun and really enjoyed embodying her hippie character on stage. With skits for each decade, outfits ranged from elegant flapper dresses and sharp suits to disco inspired dance clothes from the seventies.

For many senior girls, including Hailey Brock, their favorite part of the show was definitely getting hair and makeup done by professionals before the show because it really added to the whole experience. Also featured in the show was the always exciting CHS Catwalk section where students modeled clothes designed by fellow CHS students. Meghan Enslow, who wore a 70s inspired outfit designed and made by Jacquelyn Kaiser, thought that her outfit was so fun to model and extremely well made.

Following the fun outfits of the skits and Catwalk, the show was closed by a prom section and choreographed dance routine in which a few seniors received the opportunity to dress up in tuxedos and evening gowns. A few senior girls were even put in vintage prom dresses from the 1920s to the 1980s. Mary Farricker, who opened the vintage prom section in a 1920s black velvet dress and matching gloves, said that although she initially felt nervous, walking on the stage was an experience she would never forget.

In addition to watching the show, the audience and models both had the opportunity to try their luck in a few of the always highly anticipated raffles. Raffles prizes this year included full year parking spots for next year seniors, goodies from clothing stores and boutiques such as Vineyard Vines and J crew, and even Taylor Swift concert tickets.

Even amidst quick changes and last minute outfit alterations, the CHS seniors all looked incredible in their outfits and the night was truly memorable for everyone involved.
