The grad class of 2011 put on a fahion show last week as a way to raise money for their end of year dry grad celebrations.

GESS wows audience with fashion show

The grad class at George Elliot Secondary School entertained Lake Country last week with a student organized fashion show.

George Elliot Secondary held its annual grad fahion show last week in front of a packed audience at the Creekside Theatre.

Friends and families cheered the models on and howled over the presumptiously feigned egos that they brought to the stage as they strutted down the catwalk.

The evening was divided into two episodes. The first featured popular casual wear loaned to the show from Warehouse One, The Gap, Island Snow, West 49, Socialite, Ripcurl, American Apparel, West Coast, Costablanca and Mantique. The second half was devoted to formal wear from Black and Lee, Ten Fashions, Bliss, Moores, Georgies, Melanie Lyne, L’amore, Tip Top and Torino’s.

Azotto’s Salon and Mary Kay rounded out the list of sponsors and took care of the models make up and hair needs.

Interspersed throughout the show drama students kept the energy level high with a comedic skit that pitted the four seasons against eachother trying to determine which one was best.

The money made on the fashion show goes to support dry grad activities for the 2011 class. The organizing committee in charge of that event is still looking for parents to help plan and deliver Dry Grad 2011. Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to call Perry Krogfoss at 250-766-0748.
