With lights dimmed low and music pumped high, the Powell Hall stage was converted to a runway for two days last weekend as the Lumina fashion design show sparkled at St. Clement’s School.
The 12th edition of this annual creative celebration involved 57 original designs assembled by 23 seriously clever Clementines. The entire production required more than seven months of hard work and dedication and involved 80 designers, models, choreographers, and crew members.
The result was 90 minutes of design excellence and outstanding entertainment in a sold-out Powell Hall.
Lumina debuted in the 2007-08 school year and has evolved into one of St. Clement’s largest annual events, most important fundraisers, and the only production run entirely by students.
This year’s show benefitted SKETCH Toronto, a community-arts enterprise aimed at assisting youth, ages 16-29, living homeless, on the margins, and navigating poverty.
