Ladysmith Secondary School will hold its 2013 Grad Fashion Show Tuesday

LSS grads holding their fashion show March 12

The Ladysmith Secondary School Grad Fashion Show is being held Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in the school gym.

It’s time for Ladysmith’s graduating students to strut their stuff.

Ladysmith Secondary School’s Class of 2013 is putting on a Grad Fashion Show tonight (Tuesday, March 12) at 7 p.m. in the school gym.

The Grad Fashion Show is a fundraiser for the Class of 2013, and along with ticket sales, the graduates are raising money through a bake sale and silent auction, which will be held during the fashion show.

This year, the theme for the Ladysmith Secondary School graduation is New York, so the Grad Fashion Show follows in that theme, explained Joanne Bergeron, chair of the show.

“This year, we wanted to do something different,” she said. “We tried to make our show as much in the style of New York Fashion Week, and we have a set from the Chemainus Theatre.”

For clothing, the organizers went to stores like Top Drawer in Ladysmith and like Quintessential and Catwalk Fashions in Nanaimo for more “avant-garde” styles, explained Bergeron, adding the fashion show will feature a mix of casual clothing, formal wear and evening wear.

“We wanted to make it a lot more fun and a little different from other years,” she explained.

The Grad Fashion Show will be a big production, with lights and music, and the show will feature 34 models.

Bergeron is excited for the show, and she says a lot of people and organizations have contributed to making sure the event will be a success.

“I have a fabulous committee helping me,” she said. “We’ve been working on this since October, and we’ve got staging and a lot of people donating items.

“The town is pitching in very nicely to help support us.”

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and Bergeron encourages people to come right at 6:30 p.m. so they have a chance to see the silent auction items and peruse the tables of baked goods.

There will be a 15-minute intermission during the show to allow time for bidding on silent auction items and buying baked goods. The bake sale will include single items, along with larger quantities, such as a dozen cookies or a whole cake, according to Bergeron.

Tickets for the Grad Fashion Show are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. They are available at Take 5, LCU Insurance and through the grads, and tickets will be available at the door. Student tickets can only be purchased through the school.
