This event is the culmination of months of hard work and will include Holmes, Reagan, Johnson, Brackenridge, Marshall, O’Connor, Smithson Valley, Stevens, Wagner, and Warren High School. Beyond just designing the clothes, the design students have worked with the families to gain insight into the child’s lifestyle.
