An assortment of outfits from long ago graced the improvised runway at Grundy Avenue Elementary School during a fashion show that depicted a number of prominent styles from the colonial period in America. 

Fourth-grade students navigated the cafeteria runway showing off their colonial outfits to classmates and family members while students read aloud explanations of what each student wore. A number of popular accessories from the time period were highlighted, including aprons, bonnets, bifocal glasses, straw hats, suspenders and wicker baskets. In addition, multiple students dressed in outfits that represented important jobs during the time period such as blacksmiths, carpenters and farmers. 

As part of the curriculum unit on colonial life, the activity served as an excellent visual representation of fashion during an important time in American history.
