JCTC hosts Fashion United

Many parents and community members filled the Jessamine Career and Technology Center multipurpose room for the fashion show, Fashion United, on Thursday.

The show was hosted, planned and promoted by JCTC’s advanced fashion marketing class consisting of 18 students. Many students from both East and West Jessamine High strutted their stuff on the runway in the various segments of the event, including the united upcycle trash to fashion projects — which the students made, Geno’s Formal Affair Prom Fashion Show, Old Navy sportswear segment and the seventh annual Mr. Jessamine County Pageant.

The event raised $500, $200 of which will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The rest will go to help DECA students go to the International DECA competition in Anaheim, CA on April 26 – 30.

Rachel Kahly, a business and marketing teacher and DECA advisor at JCTC said the students took home a lot of professional skills that will later help them in the workplace, such as communication.

“I thought they did a great job they worked really hard,” Kahly said.
