Congratulations Class of 2014!
You did it! We could not be more proud of our GEMINI Graduates this year. It is such an incredible experience to watch the transformation of the young ladies who walk through our door way at the beginning of our modelling and self improvement course in October. Each year we enroll a wide variety of girls with different personalities, styles and comfort levels. Many of the girls are nervous and shy during the first term of the program but their comfort level and confidence always grows throughout the course. We love the Graduation Fashion because it is a perfect opportunity for these young ladies to show off everything they have learned in the course.
Our Graduation Fashion Show this year took place at St. George Banquet Hall in Waterloo. Similar to previous years, our students at the GEMINI Academy got the opportunity to demonstrate some of the skills they have learned through the course by putting together an outfit from home that they modelled on the runway. The instructors Meaghan Dietrich and Sarah Davidson worked with the girls to create a different Fashion Theme for each of the classes. And wow! Our students were very creative! We had everything from a Rainy Day theme – complete with umbrellas and rain boots (Modelled by our Saturday – Just For Girls Modelling Program) to extreme Hollywood Glam!(Modelled by our Thursday Teen Modelling Program).
We were thrilled to once again have sponsorship from Conestoga Mall. We absolutely love working with all of the retailers at this mall. They are so welcoming, friendly and excited to be apart of this amazing event. During the third term of the GEMINI program, our academy students had one of their modelling classes take place at one of the stores in Conestoga Mall to do some fun shopping for the Graduation Fashion Show! Our audience got to see some of new fashion trends for spring and summer 2014 from GAP Kids, Children’s Place, Aeropostal, Bluenotes, Boathouse, West 49, Dynamite, Suzy Shier and Jean Machine. Be sure to visit Conestoga Mall for all of your fashion needs! – Conestoga Mall Website
Our Advanced Teen Modelling Classes got to work with INSIGHT Eye Care to create four unique and unforgettable scenes. Our guests at the show got to see some fun flirty knee high socks, handmade black skirts, a scene all about jail house rock (including handcuffs!) and a scene called ‘paper dolls’. The scenes were all tied together by the latest trends in eye wear by INSIGHT Eye Care. Be sure to check out their store to see why we love INSIGHT Eye Care so much! – INSIGHT Eye Care Website
La Creme’s stunning gowns also made an appearance on the runway. Our Advance Teen Models ended the show with jaw dropping dresses from La Creme in St. Jacobs. You could tell by the students faces and the way they walked that the gowns made them look and feel like princesses! Be sure to visit La Creme for all of your grad, prom, wedding and formal wear needs. –La Creme Website
Also during the third term of the program our students got to learn all about the latest hair styling trends from the fabulous employees at Gina’s Salon & Spa. They came into our studio to work with and teach our academy students some fabulous hair styles for the Graduation Fashion Show! The talent of Gina’s employees definitely rubbed off on our students. Their hair looked fabulous for the show! Check out Gina’s Salon & Spa for your next hair cut or style! – Gina’s Website
Our GEMINI Academy Students also received a lesson from one of our certified make up artist in term three, to teach them some fun runway make up. We also had Sarah Davidson and Heidi Christensen on location at the Grad Show to help our models with fake lashes and lipgloss. Check out Sarah D’s fabulous online portfolio! – Sarah D’s Make Up Artistry Website
If our students didn’t already feel like supermodels walking on the runway with over 500 audience members, they must have when they realized two amazing photographers and one videographer where there to capture the whole event!
