A Road Less Traveled Fashion Show

Fashion Week Inside Look is happy to be a part of this awesome event that showcased young, talented designs of the students from the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (LVCHSA).  Although this is our first time at this event, this was the fifth annual fashion show held at the Palace Center in Allentown.  
The emcee at the event was Ashley Russo, President and Executive Producer of ASR Media Productions, and creator of PEAK TV. 
The Theme of the night was "A Road Less Traveled" and we saw designs from boutiques, retail stores, emerging designers, and student designers. 
The show was a tribute to the unique and amazing individuals and companies that support and recognize the power of the arts. 
14 students showcased their designs and the headliner was Justin Orlick, 12th grader Visual Art Major.  The models were students from the school.  The students' designs were original and creative, and the models rocked the runway like professionals. 
Justin Orlick showcased his children and adult clothing  collections.  He also made a statement on marriage equality by staging a same sex marriage in his "The Wedding" collection.
It was refreshing to see the raw talent of the future designers coming out of this school.  Several of these students will be chosen to showcase their designs during Lehigh Valley Fashion Week.  

Fashion Week will be held on April 28th to April 30th, check out and like their facebook page,, to get updated information  on ticket sales.
