Twenty-eight designers in Mrs. Coors’ fashion class will be showing over 100 pieces.
There will be pieces in womenswear and menswear.
“The student designers have been working feverishly to make this show the most spectacular
yet, taking inspiration from the vast world around them, researching new fabrics and construction
techniques and forecasting future fashion trends,” said Mrs. Coors in an email to TSC faculty and staff.

Mrs. Coors’ daughter, Gabrielle Coors, has been modeling in the show for six years.
In fact, Coors is now signed to a modeling agency, and hopes to continue modeling as a career.
She might also receive a degree in fashion design or fashion marketing.
This year and for the first time, Coors is a designer.
She will be showing two dresses, a skirt, a shirt, and a jumpsuit.
There will be over 100 models in the show this year, and surely some will be nervous before
taking the runway.
Coors assures first-time models not to stress out about it.
“It actually feels amazing,” said Coors. “I see a lot of models get nervous but it’s actually so
much fun. You kind of feel like a celebrity with all eyes on you like that. Definitely surreal.”
Coors says that this year’s show definitely won’t be one to miss.
“Being in the show in the past has been amazing,” Coors said. “There is so much work put into
these fashion lines. Mrs. Coors always says it's our fashion show, not hers, but without her we would
have no idea what to do. She does a great job of letting us designers use creativity and solve problems
on our own. I can say this year has some stunning pieces, and a lot of variety when it comes to
inspiration and design.”
The Harrison Fashion Show will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the K-Wing Commons.
The cost is $3 for students, $5 for adults, and free for children under the age of 10.
