CHATHAM, NJ - It's safe to say it was another "Killer" event presented by the Chatham High PTO on Sunday when 16 CHS students showed off their talents in the "Catwalk 2020 Design Challenge."
The challenge was to create a design based on the annual Chatham High Senior Fashion Show set for Friday, March 13th. The theme is linked to the movie "Friday the 13th" with Camp Crystal Lake as the setting for "Killer Camp Goes to Prom."
First-year designer Lilly Manning, a junior, was the overall winner with her design "The DeVil" worn by senior model Katie Ott. (see interview below)
Designer Ramy Brook Sharp, a 1986 Chatham High graduate, served as one of the judges and provided a $500 gift certificate to the winner. The Ramy Brook collection is sold in Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Also receiving recognition as runner-ups in the competition were junior Caity Bailey with her "The Golden Touch" creation worn by senior model Jane DesMarais, and junior Molly Huth, who designed "The Scream" worn by Camille Winn.
