After their yearlong hiatus, Fashion Club has decided to make a comeback. Co-presidents Janelly Lizardi and Karina Castanon, seniors, will be hosting their second spring fashion show on April 25th in the auditorium from 6:30 PM until 7:30 PM.

The fashion show has brought a great opportunity for male seniors to limit their prom spending. Males who volunteer to model for the show will receive a free tuxedo rental from Men’s Wearhouse. They will be considered representatives for the store and will promote the tuxedos as they walk the runway.

“I don’t normally like to dress up for fun, but I’m glad to show off today’s fashion trends,” said Kevin Cline, senior. “I think highly of the club to go out and find models of all races and sizes.”

Becca’s Closet will be giving female models free prom dresses of their choice to show off. Becca’s Closet is a non-profit organization with a mission to make every girl feel special. It is located in the basement of Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.

“The diversity in this club as a whole brings so much to the table,” said Jordan Boyd, senior. “Not only are we representing the clothes, but we are representing the culture and trends of so many.”

The show will be divided into three segments: formal wear (girls in prom attire only), formal wear (boys in prom attire only), and casual/streetwear. There will be a finale where all groups come together. In between each segment, fashion club has organized acts for the audience’s entertainment, including a performance by the jazz band and a traditional Hispanic dance performed by Somos Latinos. Fashion club presidents encourage underclassmen to participate in the casual/streetwear segment of the show.

“I really hope that students who attend the fashion show will continue to keep the club alive at Guilford,” said Castanon. “The club encourages those who want to pursue a career in fashion.”
