Woodbury High School girls showed off their inner beauty, and a little outer beauty, Friday during the “Be-You-tiful” fashion show held at the school.
The fashion show, which featured clothes from Mainstream Boutique in Woodbury and Prim Boutique in St. Paul, was put on my the school’s SHE club.
“The fashions are things that girls would wear in high school ,” SHE co-president Angela Dahye Jung said. “The fashions are really fun, casual and girly.”
In addition to modeling fashions, the “Be-You-tiful” fashion show also featured the WHS hip hop dancers and other local entertainment.
The SHE club, which started at Central High School and has since spread across the metro, is a group focused on women-empowerment, where girls can come together to talk about the topics that affect them today.
SHE’s mission statement is “to promote unity, ethical responsibility, mentorship, and to bring awareness to health, mental, physical, and spiritual, amongst women of various backgrounds.”
Jung said the WHS SHE club wanted to organize the fashion show after hearing of Central High School’s annual one.
“They do their annual fashion show,” she said, “so we wanted to bring that to Woodbury High School as well.”
The concept behind the “Be-You-tiful” fashion show is to emphasize all aspects of what makes a girl beautiful.
During the fashion show, an announcer described each girl and the aspects of themselves that they felt made them beautiful, such as kindness, intelligence, humor and being themselves.
“This whole year we’ve been focusing on a girl’s inner beauty, not exactly the outer beauty,” SHE club co-president Yiddya Yimer said.
