SCA and Fashion Marketing presents ‘Best of Cox’ and Fashion Show, highlights new theme and talents

The SCA and Fashion Marketing Department presented ‘Best of Cox,’ and the annual CHS fashion show together this year, continuing a newer tradition that began after COVID. The show presents the newest fashion trends, as well as highlights senior boys and their hidden talents.

”Empire State of Style”

This year’s fashion show theme is “Empire State of Style,” and is directed by Marketing teacher Jade Bolling and was choreographed by Advanced Fashion student seniors Ava Copeland, Ellie Buffkin and Marissa Moore. Fashion Marketing Department and the Advanced Fashion students, as well as a few select teachers, will strut across the stage, showing off a series of several different styles and a few dance moves to add some spice, as well as exemplify the latest style trends New York has to offer.

“The fashion show is an awesome thing because the Marketing class helps with social media, the Theatre department helps with the technical stuff, fashion students partner with the community, and also get the teachers involved,” Bolling said.

The show contain different scenes, involving a teacher dance off, a “strut through central park,” “meet me at the met,” and a walk on the “concrete catwalk.”

Fashion students once again teamed up with local businesses and clothing stores including: Bahama Shop, Polish, WRV, Airotcov, All the Rage, and Athleta to model their clothing on stage.

“It’s a fun event every year that really brings the teachers and students together, which you don’t see a lot in events at school,” math teacher and fashion show participant Sean Duffy said.

“Best of Cox”

In conjunction with the Fashion show, SCA presented “Best of Cox,” formerly known as “Mr. Cox”, which is a pageant for senior boys at CHS, who perform their unique talents for the audience and a panel of judges. The judges then vote for one of the talented young men to earn the title, ‘Best of Cox.’

According to Business Education teacher and SCA sponsor Stacey Bellissimo, the “Best of Cox” pageant generally contains s a big part of the student body, is a awesome senior experience, and is another way to highlight senior students’ talents and who they are as people outside of the school setting.

This year’s pageant was directed by seniors Josie Miller and Laci Macan and highlighted four seniors: Juan Pablo Penuelas, Aiden Clark, Grayson Howard, and Sam Braidwood.

“The “Best of Cox” pageant is a really fun thing to do and is something I’ve seen and wanted to be a part of since I was a little kid,” Clark said. “This year, we hope to bring up the school spirit from how it used to be years before.”

Although the competition was fierce, Juan Pablo Penuelas earned the title of “Best of Cox,” to conclude this year’s pageant and fashion show.
