Fashion show raises money for Guatemalen family
- Photos (2)
Fashion and compassion were on display Sunday during the "Hope's In Style" charity fashion show at the Garlands Center for the Performing Arts in Barrington.
The show, hosted by Barrington High School students, raised money for Potter's House Association, a charity that is building a home for 8-year-old Monica Morales and her seven family members living in the Guatemala City garbage dump.
Barrington High School junior Courtney Quigley came up with the idea for the show after interning for a month in Guatemala with Potter's House, an organization that helps more than 11,000 people currently living in garbage dump communities in the Central American nation.
With the help of her sisters, Ashley and Chloe, Courtney has enlisted 17 Barrington High students who are working as off-site "stylists" to design outfits for children and adults who live alongside the Morales family in Guatemala.
Volunteer models showcased the designs, incorporating clothing from local boutiques and original pieces created by the student stylists. The audience voted on the best stylist-model team.
