MARLBOROUGH – For the first time in three years, Marlborough High School students got to strut the catwalk and show their stuff.
On May 3, at the Little Theater, students in the clothing and textiles class presented clothing they designed and made with a whirlwind, worldwide presentation.
“A Passport to Fashion” made stops in Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris, accompanied by descriptions written and announced by the students.
More than 55 students served as models, commentators, stage managers, technical support and more.
The show has been a tradition at the high school since it was in the Walker Building, said clothing teacher Roberta Collins.
“The amazing thing is what these students can do,” she said.
With the show “off stage” for the previous two years because of COVID-19, Collins said they had to “start from scratch” for this year’s program.
For the students, the show offered a chance to show their projects in front of a live audience.
“I’ve always been into arts and crafts,” said freshman Joyce Milioli, who wore a pleated skirt she made in class.
“This is amazing,” said senior Emile Antoine, who modeled and helped with the lighting. “I’m excited, I’m so ready for this. Miss Collins always does a great job.”
