A packed house at Langley witnessed the show, which was put on by students in the Advanced Fashion Marketing Class. More than 200 students served as models.

"They put on quite a show, it’s hard to believe this is just a high school show," said Samantha Freeman, whose niece was in the show. "They really had the look of professionals, everyone who got on the runway seems so confident, you could really sense the time and effort that went into the show."

One scene featured outfits that were entirely designed, sewn and modeled by students. The outfits represented a variety of different styles, depending on what each student preferred.

"It’s amazing the skills these kids have, to put together dresses and other outfits that looked like they came out of some catalog," said Phil Ancini, one of the attendees. "I don’t know much about fashion, but I know that it takes real skill to turn pieces of fabric into what we saw on stage last night. I think all of these kids have a bright future in this if they choose to pursue it."
