“ Blast From The Past “ was a fashion show that I and two others conducted together as our capstone project. Our fashion show took place in the auditorium of SLA @ Beeber. The name of the show is called “ Blast From The Past “ because all of our different scenes from the show was decades. Our show featured the 70’s, 90’s, Present , and Afrocentric scenes.
Each scene was designated to either me or one of my partners. At first when we decided to have a fashion show as our capstone, we were going to bring in designers around Philly and present their clothes. However, after time passed we realized that we wouldn’t be doing any work. We changed our initial idea and plan for our capstone. We still were doing a Fashion show, but this time we were the designers. Each scene was given to either me or my partners, and individually we styled the clothes that the models wore to replicate the decades. Having the idea in tact was just the first task of many in order for our Capstone Project to be a success. The process of our Capstone was not an easy one, but it was a fun one. Through this Fashion Show students from 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade were able to connect and bond. Students became more comfortable with each other and was allowed to feel like themselves no matter how silly they each felt about the clothes.
This project has taught me a lot when it comes to my future life. I learned that if you want to put on a production, you must have an equipped team. This was one of the biggest things I learned working on my Capstone this year. Being able to learn this now is extremely influential to my future aspirations. Also, I learned a lot about the different fashion trends and fabrics that went with each decade. With this I was able to see what changed through the years, and/or what trend stayed. The Blast From The Past show had a great outcome, many enjoyed and loved the outfits that models had on. Because the show was so good, our capstone ended successfully. It was a blast being able to work with partners/partner that have the same goals that I have. Due to this we were able to collaborate and put on a great production.
