My name is Delores Wallace and I am the District Parent Coordinator for the Essex County Vocational Technical Schools. For the past 9 years, an awesome group of individuals have produced a fashion show held at Essex County Newark Tech High School, started by myself and my colleague Mr. Van Williams. Mr. Williams was a teacher for the Vocational School for 42 years before he retired and passed away. In the transition of his life, he wanted me to keep going on with the show and God has allowed me to do that.
At the end of each show, the questions always asked by the students are “can I be in the show next year” and “do you know the theme for the next show”. The show is always a great outlet for the youth to be able to express themselves in a creative way through fashion. We also find that the experience helps build self-esteem and self-confidence. Fashion shows have become extremely popular worldwide! Everyone enjoys a good show, especially young girls aspiring to become ladies. I want to give young people an opportunity to walk the runway, embrace who they are and celebrate their own special beauty, because we are all created to be beautiful. Despite funding challenges, I always develop themes and create exciting shows for students to learn from, enjoy and remember!
This year’s theme CELEBRATION-A FASHION SHOW REUNION- “It’s A Family Affair” is a professionally produced show that is ready for the next level of exposure! We want more people to know about the important work we are doing with youth of all ages, through our show. We are inviting members of the media to come see a show that breaks the fashion stereotypes, does not discriminate and gives everyone a chance to shine. I would like for your organization to witness this great transformation first hand by visiting one of the ongoing rehearsals or by being a media guest for the show that will be held on Friday, May 12th @ 7pm.
Thank you in advance for your support!
