Fashion club will be hosting its only photoshoot of the year after school on Friday, Dec. 7. The “decades” theme of the photoshoot forces each team to implement the clothing styles of the late 1900s into the outfits. Members of fashion club had the choice of participating as designers or models, with one to three models per designer.

Decisions about the planning process of the photoshoot was left entirely up to the students. They were forced to be creative and think of original ways to incorporate the theme into the final outfits.

“[The students] have control over all of it,” fashion club adviser Christina Barrientos said. “Usually, the designers have a little more control than the models because they are the creative brains behind everything, so they do the shopping, measuring and reconstruction, while the models are there to pose for the pictures.”

Multiple steps were involved in designing outfits to cater to this year’s theme. Some pieces of the outfits were purchased at thrift stores and personalized, while others were custom made by the designers. Creating an entire outfit by hand can be time-consuming and challenging, so those who chose to make their projects themselves must have dedication.

“I had to figure out both of my model’s sizes and then figure out how I was going to draw and make [the clothes],” senior fashion club president Lauryn Willis said.

The models wish to portray a unique character based on the decade they were assigned. Each outfit has its own story which the models must convey through poses and facial expressions in the photos.

“What interests me is how you can wear different clothes and bring them alive just by doing certain things with [how you wear] them,” junior Darnell Baltimore said.

The results of the fashion photoshoot will benefit all who participate. The experience of drawing out an outfit and bringing it to life will serve to teach the designers and models about all aspects of the fashion world.

“I’m looking forward to actually getting myself out there because I’m making everything from scratch,” Willis said. “It’ll be cool to see what everyone can do from scratch as well.”

Barrientos is excited to see her students’ efforts pay off and wants to be able to celebrate their successes with them. She wishes to see her students continue to grow throughout the remainder of the year.

“[I’m excited for] the experience of doing it,” Barrientos said. “All the planning makes me a little anxious, but when it’s all here on Friday, it’s so much fun. It’s more like a little party. We have snacks and food there, so it doesn’t even feel like work. Another exciting part is showing [the students] after I’m done editing the photos. It’s so fun to see their reactions.”
