Fashion For Change 2017
The Stanwich School’s gymnasium went from school zone to vogue-filled fashion show Friday night at Fashion For Change.
An assemblage of 50 students and faculty spent the evening of Friday, January 20 modeling an array of fashion pieces in the school-turned-runway. The show featured students in grades PreK through 12 wearing fashions from the collections of Jolie Gotique, Stella M’Lai, Winged Money and Vineyard Vines. Hair and make-up was styled by The Loft Hair Salon and Spa in Stamford, and music from Dexter Fisch, DJ from Arch Street (Greenwich Teen Center) entertained the audience.
Models walked up and down the light-lined runway, pausing to pose, smile or toss a hand on their hip as the crowd of family and friends cheered.
Fashion For Change is an annual fundraiser for Project Blessing a long-term initiative of The Stanwich School that includes the creation of a water system and a school in Cybatanzi, a rural Rwandan community. The mission of Project Blessing is to inspire and inform communities in need and to create lifelong learners through education and resources. Every summer, Project Blessing founder and Stanwich Upper School Science teacher Shaun Fletcher, leads students and alumni to Rwanda to aid in the construction and implementation of these plans.
Thank you to all of the brands and internal and external partners who collaborated to make this year’s fashion show a huge success.
