MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital and The Galleria rolled out the red carpet for the 10th annual back-to-school fashion show celebrating the start of another school year. This was the first time in three years for the event to be held in person, and more than 300 people attended. The models (pictured), including pediatric cancer patients and their siblings, styled the season’s most popular back-to-school trends on the runway. The show featured looks from Macy’s, Kids Atelier, Levi’s, PAIGE, ZARA, Buckle, and Psycho Bunny. Sabirah Rayford, KPRC-TV anchor and emcee at the event, was joined onstage by Dr. Branko Cuglievan, MD Anderson’s assistant professor and Leukemia/Lymphoma Section Chief, and Keyana Williams, principal of MD Anderson’s K-12 accredited private school. In addition to watching the runway, families enjoyed a variety of activities including face painting, balloon artists, a coloring station, and a special appearance from Diesel, Houston Dynamo FC’s and Houston Dash mascot, sporting his official MD Anderson Cancer Center jersey.
