Whistler Secondary School’s (WSS) Class of 2019 needs you to do some spring cleaning a little early this year.

The students are preparing for their annual fundraising fashion show, set to take place on Feb. 20, and are trying to collect enough vintage clothing for the hour-long event. This year’s theme is “all about how to dress stylishly, affordably and sustainably in Whistler for fun and for everyday,” says Lisa Geddes, a parent volunteer who’s helping the students, in an email.

To that end, sponsors include Velvet Underground, Deja Vogue, the Re-Use-It Centre and Vula.

For this event, WSS is considering anything from the ‘90s and earlier as vintage. They’re on the hunt for male and female clothing and accessories, including “denim, leather, festival wear, outerwear, spring break getaway, winter/summer/spring/fall, glamorous, punk, skater, scholar, etc!” Clothing—which can be donated or leant—can be dropped off at 3546 Falcon Cres. in Blueberry. There will be a plastic bin with a lid for clothing on the porch—just make sure you label it with your name, phone number and email.

Clothing will be ready for pick up on Feb. 22. The funds raised from the event—which will also include a bake sale and silent auction—will go towards the class’ prom and dry grad.
