A Project Runway-style fashion show, to benefit the Natick High School After the Prom Party, will be held at The Center for Arts in Natick at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 3.
The After the Prom Party, which is entering it’s the 23rd year, is run by Natick parents who provide a fun, substance-free event for NHS students and their guests to attend immediately after the junior and senior Prom.
This year, “the After Prom Party theme is Reality TV, so we named the Fashion Show accordingly,” said Jean Turcotte, who is co-chairing the event with Nancy Shrier.
Diva On A Dime, a women's consignment shop in Millis, has put together outfits for 20 models. Student models from Natick High School and both Kennedy and Wilson Middle schools will be wearing one casual outfit of their choice and one formal or semi-formal outfit.
The adult participants will be teachers and Natick parents. They wear one outfit of their choice, either casual or formal.
There was a lot of creativity in choosing the outfits. Cheryl Lagace, the owner of Diva On A Dime, has provided everything from clothing, footwear, jewelry, bags to other accessories.
The ushers will be students and one teacher. Men’s Wearhouse in Framingham is donating their tuxedos for the evening.
The models will have the option of buying their outfits, or any piece they like, for 25% off of the already low price. Guests of the event may also buy anything they see on the models that the models don’t purchase, for 25% off. And, any guest at the show may shop at Diva On A Dime for an entire month after the show and receive 25% off their purchase.
David O'Leary, who was born and raised in Natick, and who was recently inducted into the Natick High School Wall of Fame, will be the MC.
Michael Siagel of Siagel Productions, will be the fashion show’s DJ.
Refreshments will be served. There will also be raffle prizes for two prom tickets, a home-cooked dinner for four, prom flowers, tux rentals, hair and nail gift certificates, and more.
The Center for Arts in Natick is located at 14 Summer Street, Natick. The theater is wheelchair accessible.
