Students of the Fashion Merchandising class of the Manteca Unified School District’s Regional Occupational Program are gearing up for their Premiere Runway Show.

Thanks to the support of area businesses – Rue 21, Clothes Avenue, Mango, Maurices, TJ Maxx, Elaine’s Boutique, Formal Connection, Gap, and JC Penney’s, to name a few – they’ll get a chance to model the latest styles beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Sierra High gymnasium, 1700 Thomas St., Manteca.

Students from ROP instructor Angie Anaya have been in charge of all aspects of the show.

“They’ve been working diligently to produce this amazing event,” she said. “They’ve been responsible for working with community retailing stores, from putting together outfits to showcasing, recruiting models from Sierra, Manteca High, East Union, and Lathrop.”

Students have also organized numerous fittings and rehearsals.

Admission is $5. All proceeds will benefit the Fashion Merchandising class / club.

The Premiere Runway Show will again have the support of the ROP community.

Amy Lee’s Culinary Arts class is furnishing desserts and beverages.

Liz Aschenbrenner’s Fashion Design students are producing the swag bags filled with donated goodies for all VIPs in attendance.

Dave Koch’s Video Production is working to capture every minute of the show, with his students serving as photographers.

Joe Waller’s Careers in Law Enforcement class is providing security for the event.
