Cinderella may have ended, but the fairytale dreams will continue at the “Once Upon A Dream” fashion show on Sunday, March 11 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

At the fashion show, teachers and students will model outfits donated by local retailers. “I’m looking forward to seeing the different clothes. I love fashion,” religion teacher and volunteer model Rachel Harkins said. “I’m looking forward to seeing what the different stores are offering and what I’m going to be modeling.”

This year, senior Linnea Andersen is assisting the Patriot Parent Association Fashion Show Committee and Director of Annual Giving and Constituent Relations Laura Lang in organizing the fashion show as her senior project.

“I was actually out of ideas for a senior project. My original idea didn’t work out and this seemed perfect,” Andersen said.

In addition to the modeling of various outfits, there will be an auction to benefit the senior class’ after-prom.  “I think that the fashion show is the fun part for kids, but for adults it is the auction. We have things like weekends at a beach house to a free JC ring,” Andersen said.

After weeks of planning, Anderson is looking forward to enjoying watching her senior project come together.  “I am looking forward to seeing the kids in my class come together to make a fun show. I think that, because I am part of the senior class, it is more personal because it is my friends that will be out there, entertaining and wearing fabulous clothing,” Andersen said.
