Benson HS Color Guard Uniforms

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Oct 19, 2016 1:45:00 PM

We began our relationship with the Benson HS marching band back in 1996 when we designed and manufactured color guard uniforms for their flagline. They wore them for over 10 years before they decided that they wanted to replace them with new white leotards and skirts that went with their fully sequined vests. In 2006 we accommodated this group and didn’t hear any more until 2012, when we again received an order to replace the white leotards and skirts. And this time we also replaced the vest from that original 1996 order. We were recently contacted to design brand new color guard uniforms for delivery next spring, along with female drum major uniforms.
