The idea of the fashion show came to existence in France in 1858 at a Parisian fashion house, otherwise known as the House of Worth. Charles Frederick Worth presented a “parade,” or défilé, of models wearing his designs to his wealthiest clients, inventing the idea of both the fashion show and the live model. The first official American fashion show occurred in 1903 in a New York City shop called Ehrich Brothers. In 1943, during the German occupation of France, Eleanor Lambert of New York City organized the fashion shows of numerous designers under a single period of time, calling the shows “Press Week.” In 1945, the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture established a time during which each designer exhibited a minimum of 35 looks, establishing a time of “haute couture,” or “high fashion.” In 1958, the National Chamber for Italian Fashion established “Settimana Della Moda” in Milan; however, many individual designers such as Dolce & Gabbana exhibited and continue to exhibit their models without the interference of the National Chamber for Italian Fashion. In 1973, the French Fashion Federation organized “Paris Fashion Week,” presenting many “prêt-à-porter,” or “ready-to-wear,” designs at the Versailles Palace. In 1984, the British Fashion Council founded “London Fashion Week.” The shows in New York City were simply called “7th on Sixth,” in honor of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, until 2004 when Olympus, a camera company, renamed the series of shows “Olympus Fashion Week.”

American scientists had anticipated the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, since 1932. Through accurate studies of the movement of the solar system, scientists, who dreamed of observing the Sun’s corona, predicted the eclipse in The New York Times several decades ago.
Most teenagers, on the other hand, heard the term “solar eclipse” only a few short weeks before the occurrence of the event. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the Earth and the Sun, casting a shadow on Earth. The recent eclipse of August 21 was, therefore, underappreciated by many due to little understanding of the natural phenomena; however, this only ensures that the solar eclipse of 2024 will truly be an opportunity to admire the wonder in a new, appreciative light.
Rather than viewing the eclipse through a notecard from the Mount St. Mary Academy parking lot, Cecelia Rech dreams of viewing the eclipse of 2024 from the top of Pinnacle Mountain while enjoying a picnic lunch with friends. Hailey-Belle Thiltgen, on the other hand, hopes to view the eclipse of 2024 from the top of Mount Everest.
Like these students, you can experience the eclipse of 2024 as not just a brief topic of discussion in science class but as a lifelong memory. Where do you want to be for the 2024 solar eclipse?
Allison Toomer, one of Mount’s very own, had a unique experience during the eclipse that’ll certainly be funny to explain in 2024.
