Fashion Show Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Fashion Show?

The Fashion Show is a community event celebrating our seniors! All proceeds of the event will benefit the SI Scholarship Fund. 

Why do we need the Fashion Show?

The funds raised from the Fashion Show are crucial to the mission of SI. In keeping with the vision of St. Ignatius to make education accessible to all students, SI provides financial assistance to a quarter of our students. The proceeds from the Fashion Show make it possible for those who would otherwise be unable to attend SI to go to school here. 

Who participates in the Fashion Show?

SI’s seniors are featured in the actual show, but the entire SI community—including current and past parents, alumni, and faculty & staff—join in support of this great event. There are many different ways to be a part of this tremendous effort. (See How Can I Participate?)

When is the Fashion Show?

The Fashion Show is held on two different days in the Fall. This year, the Fashion Show will have an evening gala performance on Saturday, September 30, 2017 (adults only).  The second performance, as well as a luncheon and Marketplace, will be held on Sunday, October 1, 2017.  Both performances will take place in the McCullough Gymnasium.

What is the Marketplace, and where is it?
