Cranford High School Fashion Show

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino stopped by Cranford High School for their 2017 Senior Fashion Show. She spoke to the students, checked out the fashion, and sold copies of her debut novel, Ten Years Later.

Muriel Mason, Senior Class President, tells Latino that all of the night’s dresses have been donated. “Our whole community has been brought together through this night,” Mason says.

Justin Woodwick, a member of the school’s all-male acapella group, tells Latino that the group will be performing an acapella version of Katy Perry’s hit, “Firework.”

With dresses from stores including Lord & Taylor, Ultimate Fashions, and David’s Bridal, the students were dressed to impress.

All proceeds from the night went towards Project Graduation. To learn more about Cranford High School, click here.
