NNHS Class of 2020 takes to the runway for the 20th annual Senior Fashion Show

Naperville North’s senior class of 2020 modeled in the 20th annual Senior Fashion Show this past Sunday afternoon at Bobak’s Signature Events in Woodridge. Hosted by the NNHS Booster Club, the “Hooray for Hollywood” themed event serves as one of its annual fundraisers. 

Guests were given time to place their bids at a silent auction and for various raffle items while the NNHS Jazz Band performed. The sit-down luncheon began at 12:15 pm, with an “Always a Winner” wine pull and jewelry from Lauren Rae boutique available. Various organizations and school clubs donated raffle items that included baskets of Huskie spirit wear and Chicago Blackhawks jerseys, among a wide variety of prizes.

Seniors then walked the runway, modeling clothing items from brands such as Peaches Boutique, Athleta, Havana Boutique and Men’s Warehouse. Emcees read out models’ favorite moments at Naperville North, fun facts about the seniors, and future plans as they walked the runway. The seniors ended the show with an all-group lap down the runway and a rendition of the 2020 Huskie class chant.  

This event is the first of many that celebrate Naperville North Seniors during their final year of high school. Jodi Glass, who has served as the chair of the fashion show for the past three years, will be retiring from her position this year, although she may continue to contribute in a less involved role next year.

“This is the first of final senior moments,” Glass said. “It’s an honor to be a part of the show, and getting to know and watch these kids grow is what makes this event great.” 

The committee began planning the show this October, making Sunday a culmination of four months’ worth of work. Students nominated by teachers were invited to participate in the show in January, and later went through a random number draw process to choose stores. Some seniors, like Joshua Tong, who modeled in a tux from Men’s Warehouse, saw the fashion show as a chance to make the most of their senior year. 

“Overall it was a great experience making memories I might not ever get to experience again,” Tong said. “Just being in the moment and taking it all in with the senior class because we don’t really have a lot of time left together.”
