Fashion-forward Fundraiser Attracts More Than 500 Guests

Demarest, NJ: The Mother Daughter Fashion Show sponsored by the Academy of the Holy Angels may be a long-standing tradition, but this event is anything but staid or stodgy. This fashion-forward fundraiser attracted a sellout crowd of over 500 guests to the Mahwah Sheraton. 

Past, present, and future AHA students and their families shared the fun, which included a tricky tray auction that featured over 125 prizes donated by local businesses and AHA families.

Models included 88 members of the AHA Class of 2017 and five seniors from Bergen Catholic High School and Don Bosco Preparatory High School. The young men who participated had to have a relative who is an AHA student, alumna, or staff member.

The young women modeled outfits provided by Lord & Taylor’s Fashion Center location, while their escorts sported tuxes from Biltmore Tuxedos in Ridgewood. Hair and makeup were courtesy of The Originals Salon in Ridgewood and Mania Hair in Park Ridge. Annuhea’s Flowers in Oradell supplied the floral designs.

This enjoyable evening was the result of several months of planning by school staff members and many parent and alumnae parent volunteers, who helped make the event a success.

Proceeds from the Mother Daughter Fashion Show will be used for educational purposes.


Since 1879, thousands of women have passed through the portals of Academy of the Holy Angels high school, the oldest private girls’ school in New Jersey. Many go on to study at some of the nation’s best universities, earning high-ranking positions in medicine, government, law, education, public service, business, arts and athletics. Our goal is to provide each girl with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically, by offering a first –rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity and giving service to others.
