On Wednesday evening, 43 Masuk seniors dazzled their audience during this year’s annual Prom Fashion Show. A stunning display of potential prom outfits, this beloved event serves as the largest fundraiser for Masuk’s Post Prom Party with students and parents packed into the audience. Our school’s very own models walk the runway, or auditorium stage, in groups wearing the best dresses and suits on the market.
These trendy, fun or classy dresses and suits are lent to the event by vendors such as Giuliana’s Boutique, Winged Monkey, Julie Allen Bridals, David’s Bridal and Camillo Tuxedo Specialist. As students strut their stuff, the details, style and brand of their outfits, along with information on the models themselves, are grandly narrated by Mr. Swenson and Ms. Gaber. Audience members can scout out what dresses and suits they might want to wear, as well as celebrate the accomplishments of these exceptional seniors and enjoy their theatrics. In addition, concessions and raffles are available for purchase, an audience favorite with amazing prizes. Sophomore Anisha Gera explained, “I came to see all the seniors and their prom fashion show and I just really liked it overall, I thought it was really interesting and a great idea on how to raise money.”
The second portion of the event was especially interesting, as it incorporated skits into the fashion show with props ranging from a drum set to nerf guns. Senior Regan Slattery, a participant, stated, “I thought the experience was really fun, it was kinda awkward at first because you’re in a group of people you’re not really friends with, but everyone was just really nice and welcoming.” And when asked if she’d recommend that students join in future years, Slattery replied, “Yes! It’s such a fun experience and everyone in the crowd is super supportive so don’t be nervous!” Overall, the Prom Fashion Show was once again a huge hit, and is a must-see in future years.
