Walnut HS FC Raises Money for Project Hope
FC President Alyssa Perez collaborated with another club on campus on a fashion show fundraiser.
I am the president of FIDM Fashion Club and have been in Stylites for the past few years. Stylites is a club at school that has been around for about three years; they use fashion to raise awareness about human trafficking. They often donate to Project Hope, part of a non-profit organization called the Dream Center, based in LA.
Each year, Stylites does a fashion show to benefit Project Hope. I thought that this year it would be great if FIDM Fashion Club collab'd with Stylites for the show, so I pitched them the idea and we went for it.
We decided to call the show, “Spring Into Fashion,” to showcase spring fashion trends—bright and pastel colors, rompers, crop tops, and just a mix of boho and sporty styles. I wanted to do more than just show donated clothes. I wanted to borrow clothing from Styles For Less and Pacsun, to maybe attract more people. It worked.
To attract even more guests, we decided to have students perform at the event, so we collab’d with Poly Club (Polynesian Dance Club), Improv Club, and WHAM (it's like a hip hop club)—all popular clubs on campus!
We had tons of donated clothes that were modeled and everything was for sale! We also sold cakepops, cookies, and macarons (from @mikharons) which got a lot of people to show up. We reached our goal of raising $200, while having fun doing it!
