Dallas Fashion Week was kicked off with the 9th annual Greenhill Charity Fashion Show held on Jan. 18 benefitting Susan G. Komen Dallas County held at Cristi’s Banquet Hall.

The event was organized this year by Co-Chairs seniors Emily Caplan and Kirin Jayaseelan and Co-Chair juniors, Abby Meyers and Sydney Horowitz.

Susan G. Komen is a foundation that helps thousands of Dallas County women in 30 different cities dealing with Breast Cancer. They support people in the community in need by providing lifesaving health services. The foundation also funds cutting edge research to find a cure for Breast Cancer.

This year’s show featured close to 90 Upper School and Lower School students that volunteered to model. The clothes are all supplied by stores in Dallas. Stores that include, Scout and Molly, Tootsies, 45 Ten, and more lend the models outfits to wear down the runway. In addition, makeup artists and hairstylists also volunteer to help the models get ready.

“The show is so fun to participate in,” said junior Lucy Sayah who modeled 45 Ten. “I love that it is for a great cause and is a really fun event. I ended up winning 10 Soul Cycle classes through the raffle prizes.”

Raffle prizes are donated for people to enter in and win some big prizes. Prizes included floor tickets to a Mavs game, Dermatologist session with Dr. Howard Reuben, Session with Ellman photography, and gift cards to various restaurants in Dallas.

Senior Co-Chair, Kirin Jayaseelan’s favorite part of the fashion show was seeing all the models walk down the runway. In total, the event successfully raised $16,406 which surpassed their goal of $13,000.

“It was a great feeling to see that all of our hard work had paid off!” said Jayaseelan.
