Have you ever thought of having a Prom Fashion Show? It is a lot of work but can be very beneficial to your class and to local businesses. It might be fun to model fashions while your friends either model with you or watch as local businesses show off what they sell. A lot of people may not even know what shops are in their own cities so this is helpful knowing what’s available in their neighborhood. Photo, semca.org
Seeing new fashions up close can save you a lot of time and money when trying to pick out the right thing to wear. Something might look pretty in a magazine, but in person you may not like it as much, or you may like it even more.
This can also be a great preparation for the Prom Planning Committee. You can find out who works hard and can be depended on and you’ll have a solid start to knowing who will do the best job when it comes to the actual Prom. Fun and hard work can mix and produce something your fellow classmates will love.
A Prom Fashion Show is a great idea to raise funds for the prom itself or for a future class event. This also gives local businesses a chance to show their fashions and accessories off in a fun way. People who provide services could participate by advertising in the program or having a representative attend to speak of limousine rentals and dinner specials a restaurant might want to offer for the night. It is a difficult project but one that is worth the work.

The Host or Hostess
A student or teacher who will introduce all the fashions and models after the order is decided on, and to keep things moving along when the show begins.
Get a student from the AV department who knows how to run the equipment in the auditorium. You can have a student DJ too. This can be a great way to get exposure for someone who wants to do this as a living.
Meet with the businesses and vendors to donate clothing and services for the show. Arrive organized and ready to discuss what they can expect to see in the show and how the fashions and products will be presented. Don’t just go to clothing stores either, speak to hairstylists, florists and accessory shops too. Be creative in how their work and products can be displayed. The hair stylists might style the model’s hair for free in exchange for being mentioned as the show stylists.
You can also create a program and sell ad space. If your school has an art club see if you can get them involved as a class project in its design and layout.
