Emma Nicoson was admittedly nervous.

The Northview High School junior was about to take part in her first fashion show.

She has only taken Fashion and Textiles classes at the school for one year.

"My interest grew as a sophomore," Nicoson said. "I had no idea what it was. But I fell in love with it."

Nicoson and eight other NHS students offered the fashion revue as part of the entertainment during the first Ladies' Valentine's Luncheon, sponsored by French Funeral Home.

The event took place at the Renaissance Reception Center Monday.

French Funeral Home representative Susie French told The Brazil Times the event was put together for those who lost loved ones in the past year.

"This would be their first Valentine's Day without their loved one," she said. "We wanted to do something upbeat ... a day to celebrate friendship in the middle of winter."

Creative Catering provided the meal Monday afternoon and Brazil resident Steve McCullough tickled the ivories for entertainment.

"French Funeral Home called and asked if (the students) would be interested in putting together a style show at the luncheon," Northview Fashion and Textiles teacher Joanna Connors said.

Northview senior Josiah Alstott, who along with Nicoson currently takes Fashion Textiles III, was the emcee of the event. This is the first year Fashion Textiles III has been offered at the school.

"Most of the models are in Fashion Textiles II," Alstott said.

Alstott said he has been involved in another fashion showcase in Terre Haute.

"I'd like to have a career that is fashion related," he said, adding he plans to attend Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis in the fall to study Industrial Psychology.

Other models at the event included Shelby French, Jennifer Junker, Tasha Wilburn, Kylie McKee, Danielle Kriebel, Alicia Jett and Ashlen Dickison.
