Fashion Show Prep, late April 1958 Octavia High School, Colfax

Fashion Show, 1958.

This late April 1958 scene shows Octavia High School student Marcella Brucker at a sewing machine working on a dress she planned to model for the May 1 Future Homemakers of America (FHA) fashion show. Fellow FHAers Judy Hoffman (middle) and Janice Weppler stand wearing their completed dresses.
Octavia is now Ridgeview High School.
