The 34th annual fashion show at GCC is coming up and I already know it’s going to be a huge success! Last year I interned for two scenes, the menswear and the children’s wear scene. I had a great experience interning for the children’s wear scene and was able to assist in picking out the merchandise as well as style the children.
This year I knew I wanted to produce my own scene, so Taylor Bunch and I are producing the children’s scene for this year’s show Fata Morgana. The overall theme of the show focuses on deserts around the world and the idea of a mirage. We decided to make the concept for the children’s scene very bohemian and natural in order to coordinate with the theme. We came up with the title “Among The Wild Flowers” from the lyrics of a Tom Petty song.
We picked out the clothing the children will be wearing from Lord & Taylor and Gymboree. We were very excited to find that the store had a lot of bohemian and floral pieces that we mixed and matched to create our vision for our scene. We will be doing some DIY accessories to make the overall looks more natural and make our little models look like flower children.
We are going to be very busy the next couple of weeks making sure to get everything perfect for the show. Make sure you come out on April 25th to see what everyone has been working so hard on! You won’t want to miss it!
