CINDERELLA'S CLOSET

A short while ago, I participated in a charity event called Cinderella's Closet. The noble aim of the charity is to raise money, dresses, shoes, accessories, and anything else needed for a girl to have her dream prom experience. Prom is such an expensive and extravagant affair that not everyone has the luxury of participating in, so I was so ecstatic to take part in the runway show that they were hosting. Part of the runway show was a competition called "Project Runway", which gave  high school designers a chance to display works they have slaved over in the past. For the competition, I entered an Oscar De La Renta inspired gown (worn by Leighton Meester above) that I made about a year ago. I took home the awards of "Judges Best Overall" and "Crowd Favorite" given to me by honorable judges who are notable in the fashion industry!! Meanwhile, the charity went home with superfluous amounts of donations and support from the community! Overall, it was an exhilarating event with so much love and support pouring from the audience. I wish I could do it again, but I'll be off to college next year (bittersweet).

XOXO S.
