Organizing a Fashion Show



Useful in Organizing Scadian Fashion Show component of Demo’s--
As always, commitments to attend/participate MUST be reliable. As a free-standing demo, this activity will require more participants and organization than if it is a component of a larger program. If you have conveniently accessible changing rooms and enough participants to provide “changing time”, it may be possible for participants to “model” more than one set of period clothing. Be very careful when arranging such a program, however. Fill out one of these sheets for each outfit to be modelled. Script the finished program based on these notes. Consider maintaining chronological progression and a balance of places and “professions” to give the program balance. Enlist the assistance of “non-models” to coordinate “staging”, music, and narration. Assistants in the changing rooms to help lace, pin, buckle, tuck, etc. are also a VERY good idea!
