Acclaimed New York Public School 10 debuts its street-style version of a fashion runway show in celebration of mom. Come watch model moms, school faculty and staff walk down the catwalk for this PS10 fundraiser at 6pm on Thursday, May 9. A luxe trunk show will be selling irresistible Mother's Day gifts and goodies by Brooklyn-based apparel and jewelry makers, beauty products, and much more from 5pm-8pm.
To celebrate real women, individual beauty and moms everywhere, this inaugural PS10 event presents parents, school faculty and staff, in all shapes and sizes, dressed in the effortless, contemporary styles of Angelrox (founded by a former PS10 mom), and accessorized by ceramic jewelry from Corico. Both collections are crafted in Brooklyn from sustainable, eco-friendly materials. Inviting, versatile and uber-comfortable, Angelrox designs run the gamut from weekend around-town casual cool to effortless elegance for work and evenings. Proceeds from the event benefit the PS10 PTA.
“I haven't been this into a fashion show since I was a teen,” notes PS10 Principal and future model Laura Scott. “Now I get to be a part of a runway show that celebrates not just the designer, but staff and moms too. Plus, PLUS, it's for the best cause of all, my students!”
The PS10 PTA in a few short years has become a nationwide paradigm of how parent and teacher involvement can transform an urban public school into an highly sought-after academic institution. PS10, with the support of its PTA, has established cutting-edge arts programs, collaborating with the Metropolitan Opera Guild, as just one instance of success. Despite recent budget cuts to education, the PS10 community has pulled together to make sure its children continue to receive top-notch technology, math, music, dance and arts instruction. PS10, among the best-rated public schools in the country, receives substantial assistance from its PTA in many other ways as well, including new math materials and supplies for classrooms, a salad bar for lunches, and an enriching after-school program.
"It has been a dream of mine to dress mothers and teachers on the runway, the most beautiful angels in our children's lives!,” says Angelrox founder and designer Roxi Suger. “It is our mission as we grow that our runway shows are productive in raising money for worthy causes. There is no cause worth more than the education of our children!"
