Members of the East Meadow High School Fashion Club held a “Force of Nature” fashion show on March 31, raising $1,500 for “The Cure Starts Now,” a pediatric cancer research foundation for diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas, a type of brain tumor.

Throughout the year, Fashion Club members developed a theme for the show, decided on a charity to which they would donate the proceeds, coordinated with local stores to donate clothing, and arranged fittings for the models as well as taught them the choreography for the runway.

After months of planning and preparation, students in grades 10-12 volunteered to model fashion inspired by the four elements – wind, fire, water and earth. Each model posed in two outfits graciously donated by Century 21 in Westbury.

“The amount of support we received from friends, family, teachers and other students was truly amazing,” said East Meadow High School senior and Fashion Club member Olivia Megale. “I am beyond proud of all the club members and models for putting on a fabulous show.”  

The district commends the Fashion Club for using their passion for fashion to help the community.
