Highland grad class of 2019 hosts fashion show in Comox

Lights! Cameras! Action! Hollywood is moving north on Monday, April 15, at Highland Secondary, as the grad class of 2019 presents its Fashion Show at 7 p.m.

This year’s theme is “A Night at the Movies.”

Throughout the evening, emcees will have fun connecting motion picture genres with the fashion presentations of their fellow grads.

All of the models in the show are graduating students. Each group has chosen their music in line with the movie’s theme and are choreographing their own catwalk performances. There is a rumour that a group of faculty might also appear in the show – but only time will tell if this buzz bears out to be true.

All of the clothing presented in this year’s show is on loan from businesses in the Comox Valley. Stores being featured vary greatly – sports shops, thrift stores and high-end fashion boutiques are all featured.

A special feature at this year’s fashion show will be a mini-performance by the senior concert band. In line with A Night at the Movies, the band will present the theme song from the movie Mission Impossible.

You’re invited to come and enjoy Highland’s Fashion Show 2019.

The red carpet is being rolled out at 7 p.m. on Monday at the school, located at 750 Pritchard St. in Comox.

Doors open at 6:30.

Tickets are available at the school office, and will also be available at the door. Admission is just $5. If you bring a food bank donation, you’ll receive a free bag of popcorn.

Proceeds from the evening will help fund the dry grad at Mount Washington. There will be a 50/50 draw during the evening to help the cause.
