Co-enrolled art students shared art at a local fashion show. Governor’s School students modeled artful designs at The Enchanted: Wearable Art Show and Exhibition, which took place at MacArthur mall in Norfolk on Feb. 17.

The show was free to the public. Freshmen Jaelyn Otero and Gabbi Cantu modeled in the show.

“The inspiration for the whole show was a temporary exhibit at the Chrysler Museum. That exhibit showcased Renee Lalique’s piece which mostly contains glass. It took three months to make the clothing and find models. I wanted to take part in the fashion show, for it is a great opportunity to have my artwork [displayed] in the Chrysler Museum. I modeled for another artist, but I created a skirt with a partner. Our piece was inspired by a blue perfum bottle by Lalique with the shapes of eyes,” said Gabbi.
