5th Grade Fashion Show
Wednesday, April 17, 2019 3:35 PM

The 5th grade students of Northrop Urban Environmental school located in South Minneapolis are putting on a fashion show! The theme of the show is ‘The Past is Present.’ The show will be held on Friday, April 26th from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

The 5th grade students have been working hard to design and create outfits using donated and upcycled fabric with the help of local fashion designers, including Joynoelle and the University of Minnesota Apparel Design students.

These historically-inspired garments from Ancient Greece to the early 2000s will be brought to life on a 60-foot runway in the gym of the school.
This fashion show will be raising money for the 5th grade camping trip to Grand Marais.
