Carlmont’s Distributive Education Club of America (DECA club) hosted their first prom fashion show on March 15. The proceeds of the show went to the club and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The show featured dresses and tuxes from Paper & Petals, B Chic Fashions, Glamor Niche, and Men’s Wearhouse. The dresses ranged from high-low dresses to form fitting dresses.

The show highlighted Carlmont students as models, student DJ’s Teva Kohavi and Ryan Pau, performances by Vasily Provatakis and The Illuminators, and free giveaways.

Katherine Necochea, a junior said, “I saw different types of dresses and it made me think about which one I would like to wear. The models did a great job in making the dresses look more appealing.”

The project started as an idea from DECA advisor Elizabeth Chun who suggested to a group of students to combine their passion for DECA and fashion to raise funds for a good cause.

Alexis Wilson, one of the project coordinators, said, “I joined this project to learn about business, and how to plan an event, and work with new people. I learned that reaching out to the community is an important part of an event. It is vital to reach out to possible vendors that could support our event.”

Overall, the show was enjoyed by the audience cheering on their friends and family who were modeling the latest prom fashions.

Kevin Liu, the president of DECA club, commented, “The fashion show was surprisingly good, not to say that I wasn’t expecting much, it’s that I truly didn’t expect such a professional and well organized show to be put on by students. Of course there were problems, but really everybody who played a part in organizing it should be very proud of themselves for pulling off something like this, because almost everybody I talked to had a pretty good time and enjoyed the show.”
