Leon high school 3

Congratulations to FIDM Fashion Club President Caldwell Harris of Leon High School in Tallahassee, Florida, for producing and promoting her school's fashion show this year! This Friday, May 8 at 7:00pm, 23 models will be styled in 32 looks throughout the show. Caldwell staged and planned a photo shoot for images to use in promotional materials. (Check them out on their Facebook page: Leon Fashion and Design Club.) She then placed posters at local businesses, university campuses, and locations frequented by the student body to advertise the event.

With Ms. Thelma Palmer as her Fashion Club Advisor, Caldwell started the club in August last year and already has 25 club members. Follow them on Instagram @leonfashionandesign and read on for our exclusive Q&A with this inspiring Fashion Club president.

Tell us about the fashion show: As the president and founder of Leon Fashion Club, I created the theme of our show. EQUINOX is the theme I choose because traditionally that means equal hours of daytime and nighttime. For the show, I planned equal numbers of daytime and nighttime looks, across four segments. The show segments include: vintage, school day, weekend, and special occasion. 

How are you promoting the fashion show? As a club, we are promoting the show through various social media platforms, posters, and word of mouth. Through our club and personal Instagram and Facebook accounts, we have been promoting the show for the past 3.5 weeks. About two weeks ago, we staged and planned a promotional photo shoot. The pictures taken at the historic Brokaw-McDougall House are currently being used in our marketing campaigns and posters. Because many students and faculty have been seeing the posters around school, the buzz for the show is growing faster than ever. Word of mouth has been another great way of promoting the show, as a club event “EQUINOX” fashion show is featured weekly on the school announcements. We have also reached out to own sponsors—who have assisted us in promoting the event by putting our posters up in their various retail establishments and selling tickets. Finally, posters were placed at local businesses, university campuses, and locations frequented by our student body.

What do you like the most about putting together a show like this? What I enjoy the most about putting on a show like this is the opportunity to use our creativity to organize and produce a high caliber fashion show.

What are the challenges? Some of the biggest challenges have been found in time management. Personally, trying to balance school work, extracurricular, and fashion show logistics have been difficult.

Anything else you’d like to share? I have been pleasantly surprised at the amount of support the EQUINOX fashion show has received. This has truly been a team effort, with the aid of models, clothing sponsors, a fashion consultant, graphic designer, printer, school administrator, and a strong committee structure. We are also deeply indebted to our school's theater department for lighting and AV support as well as Lively Tech Cosmetology School for their willingness to provide hair and makeup services for our models. As a whole, the show would not be possible without the dedication of these individuals and so many more.

Angelica DeChavez

Angelica DeChavez is a Fashion Club member and a sophomore at Southwest Career and Technical Academy. She also makes fashion videos in her spare time. Follow her on Twitter @fashbyangelica, Instagram @fashionbyangelica, and YouTube.

Tell us a little about yourself: I'm 15 years old and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I go to a magnet school where I major in fashion design and take fashion merchandising classes. I have loved fashion ever since I was little. I remember dressing up when I was four years old with sunglasses, fake nails, a purse, and high heels. I even have a photo of it. I also used to go into my aunt's closet and try on every single pair of her high heels and walk down the catwalk (the hallway). They didn't even fit me back then. Lol! I love sketching, making garments, and going on my social media for fun. I have one older brother and one younger sister. When you first meet me I may be quiet and shy, but once you get to know me I'm talkative and nice.  

How did you get involved in Fashion Club at your high school? Well I actually heard about it and I thought it would be fun so I joined it!

What kinds of activities do you do at your Fashion Club meetings? The activities are all fashion related. We sketch, put outfits together, and even make our own garments. 

What is one of your proudest accomplishments? One of my proudest accomplishments was becoming a Top 20 Semi-Finalist in the 2012 National American Miss Nevada Preteen Pageant.

Tell us about your YouTube channel: I make fashion videos about hauls, what you can wear in different types of seasons. I also make videos about my life like vlogs, and I make videos just for fun like my sister does my makeup, the sister tag. I also want to combine my creativity so I did a video on how to make an inspiration board! I started making videos from watching Bethany Mota (macbarbie07) which inspired me. I love showing my personality and who I am through my videos. 

What’s a fashion trend you’re loving right now? Stripes is one of the trends I am loving right now. Very simple but cute! 

Who do you follow for fashion inspo? Bethany Mota for sure, because I love how she dresses. She has all kinds of styles—edgy, boho, girly, etc. 

Do you have plans to attend FIDM? Yes, FIDM is my dream college, because 1) I am going to be able to major in something I love—Fashion Design, and 2) live where I always wanted to live when I was little—Los Angeles, CA!

What are your career goals? My career goals are to travel the world promoting my clothing brand, participating in fashion shows, photo shoots, interviews, and so much more. I want people to know that I have a passion for fashion! My one most significant goal that I want to achieve is to leave with a legacy.

FIDM Fashion Club President at California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS), Tiara Wicks shares with us her club story about making prom trend books. Her 40-member club in Carson, California, was established in October 2014 with Deborah McVay as their Fashion Club Advisor. Follow them on Facebook and read on to find out what Tiara has to say...

Recently, to help seniors and juniors prepare for prom, we hosted a prom trends workshop. We researched dresses, beauty ideas, and cute party ideas! We had all the girls put the prom research in a cute binder so everything was organized. We had a page dedicated to hair, accessories, nail art, drink DIYs, and more! Overall, the girls said it was very helpful and I wanted to share the fabulous idea with all of you.

The workshop lasted for about an hour and it was very successful. We had about 25 girls participate and they all loved it! This was my favorite workshop all year, especially because it help so many people. :)

We want to hear your club stories! If you are in an official FIDM Fashion Club and would like to become a contributor to the blog, please email info@fashionclub.com.

Mazarine Ebengho, a senior and the president of Clover Park High School FIDM Fashion Club in Lakewood, Washington, has announced that they're doing a cultural fashion show, representing diverse styles, today at 6:15pm during the Art Festival at school. Woot! After you follow them on Instagram, check out what Mazarine has to say below!

I would like to share one thing about our club. We are all from different cultures, countries, and ethnicities which makes each and every one of our designs different. We have some members who are immigrants from Kenya, Korea, Congo, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, and Puerto Rico. We do our best to understand each other. We are having a cultural fashion show with diverse styles and we are really excited. 

The students donated clothing and fabrics for the fashion show. We also bought some when I went to the FIDM store in LA during a campus tour. 

We've been preparing for this fashion show since December. It takes passion, dedication, perseverance and hard work. What I like the most about the process is the fact that most members, who at the beginning of the school year could not use a sewing machine, are now sewing and creating with confidence, which is really exciting.

After putting so much time and effort, we have a sense of accomplishment. We will have eight models and twelve looks. And we even have a modeling coach, Ms. Lowe, who is working with the models! 

The challenge has been time. We meet once a week on Tuesdays. Most of the members are seniors, which makes it hard for them to be there as often as we need them to. Another challenge is we only have two sewing machines which has really slowed the process.

It is a free event opened to the school and the community. We have been promoting it on Instagram and Facebook, and also at school during lunches with posters and flyers. One thing fun about us is that we have put a lot of time working on posters. We have enjoyed doing that.
