The students will showcase their work for sale, or find people who would like to commission a custom project in photography, art or fashion.
Isabel Murphy, a Highlands senior, came up with the idea to launch her newest Cheapfit fashion collection.
“I interned for a luxury clothing designer last year and helped support her fashion shows. I saw how powerful an event can be in helping artists reach their audience. We have so many talented artists at Highlands whose work should be discovered,” said Murphy.

“Highlands and my fashion teacher Mrs. Wagner have been very supportive of my Cheapfit fashion business that I started last year. When I heard Dr. Cheser’s vision for the Launch Studio, I knew it was the perfect location for my fashion show. I hope that this event will spark other students to take their talent and become entrepreneurs while still in high school.”
This will be the first fashion show put on by a Highlands student.
According to Murphy, her Cheapfit collection is "a new take on simple everyday clothing that a young adult in New York might wear as they flow between their work and social lives. The collection uses color pops, patterns and construction to give the clothing a fresh look."
Murphy submitted the designs as part of her application to the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) where she plans to attend this fall.
"Seeing my ideas come to fruition at a fashion show is the perfect end to her high school fashion education."
