The 18th annual Kittatinny Regional High School Fashion Show was held in June with 60 students modeling more than 70 of their personal creations for an audience of parents, family and friends.
All levels of students are encouraged to participate in this culminating activity, which is organized and executed entirely by students in Clothing Arts 3, who are responsible for printing, promoting, video production, photography, writing scripts, scenery, set and lighting, sound and music.
It all starts with selecting a theme and this year students chose “Going Green” and saving the planet by conserving energy (reducing, recycling, and reusing). In keeping with the theme, students donated a pear tree to Kittatinny which was planted in the Memorial Garden.
According to teacher/advisor Danielle Tooker, students who are enrolled in Clothing Arts start with basic sewing classes and can advance their skills three levels.
She said, “My students actually design and construct their garments from sketch pad to the fashion runway. Some students create their own patterns with computer-aided programs.” Fashion Merchandising class focuses on fashion styles, designs, history, textiles, retailing, merchandising and promotion. .
