The high school’s Fashion Club used their designing talents for a good cause and earned a first-place prize while they were at it! The club members created a submission for the Bra-ha-ha competition, which supports breast cancer awareness, and their design won first place for the second year in a row. 

The club’s “tinker bra” was decorated with flower petals and leaves, as well as different fabrics such as lace. On the back, the designers included fairy wings, which were handmade from wire, pantyhose and LED lighting. 

Club advisor Melanie Mooney said the Fashion Club embraces this project each year. “Art and cancer awareness join forces, and that makes me very proud of my students,” she said. She explained that the theme of this year’s creation connects to breast cancer awareness by representing the strength and beauty of femininity while using different designs and decorations that tie into a fairy garden theme. 

Congratulations to Fashion Club members Victoria Campanella, Abby Flicker, Danya Karch, Matt Verni and Grace Yeager on this impressive and meaningful accomplishment. Senior Caroline Pierno, president of the fashion club, also created a submission for the competition titled “Mermaid,” and high school secretary Janet Ratner created “Victorian Bra.”

The Bra-ha-ha competition is held in partnership with the Karen Allen Foundation.
