About 40 male and female students, as well as teachers, took to the runway to model athletic wear, casual chic and trendy wear, and formal wear during the school's fourth annual fashion show in the high school's D Cafeteria.
Intermission performances by Bollywood dancers and student singer/songwriter Brandon Pascua broke up the evening's two-hour runway portion.
Proceeds from the show support Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, whose mission is, "to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated."
The decision to support Born This Way comes on the heels of the enactment of New Jersey's anti-bullying law this school year.
"Because New Jersey started instituting the anti-bullying law this year we’re trying to get more involved and bring more awareness to bullying," fashion club vice president Jill-Lynn Mijares said.
The high school's fashion club, headed by president Tanya Eligur and Mijares, has about 10 full-time members and fundraises year round in preparation for its annual fashion show.
Tuesday night's models wore clothing and accessories from various stores in the area including The Ridgewood Running Company and Golftini for athletic wear; Gypsy Warrior and Polo for the casual/trendy wear portion; and Men’s Wearhouse and Gattinolli Dresses for the formal attire.
Fair Lawn's Posh Hair Salon did hair and makeup for the models.
