The Issaquah High School PTSA and Associated Student Body will present their third annual Issaquah IFashion Show and Auction on March 28 in the Issaquah High School Theater.
The silent auction kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Doors open for the fashion show at 7 p.m. with the curtain rising at 7:30 p.m.
The IFashion Show and Auction support Issaquah High’s ASB and PTSA by providing funds for outreach programs and clubs including Spike Ball Club, Cycle the Wave and DECA. Since 2012, the amount the show raised has increased by about 25 percent each year.
Tickets are $15 for adults ages 18-64, and $5 for students with an ASB card and seniors ages 65 and older.
VIP tickets are $50. VIP ticket holders receive a special swag bag with donations from Neiman Marcus Bellevue, Boehm’s Chocolates and Swedish/Issaquah.
Along with raising funds for school clubs, the fashion show gives a creative outlet for juniors or seniors, such as senior Meaghan Victory, who had to eliminate most sports activities due to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
“Despite the fact that I am currently in a full-length arm cast I am glad to be able to participate,” Victory said in a press release. “It gives me an opportunity to do something fun and help raise money for school clubs with friends.”
A casting call was made in September and more than 75 models signed up on a first-come, first-served basis.
“This may be one of the only activities where you see a wide variety of kids involved together. It’s awesome,” senior David Chun, fashion show production assistant, said in the release.
ULTA Beauty, the show’s exclusive makeup and hair sponsor, is joined by many other local sponsors from Grand Ridge Plaza, Gilman Village, Bellevue and Redmond. Clothing sponsors include Macy’s, Sports Authority, The Tux Shop Redmond, Cache, Chico’s and Francesca’s.
