Dozens of people surrounded a pop-up runway on Boston City Hall Plaza Monday to watch a back-to-school fashion show — of sorts.

Rather than sporting the newest jeans and graphic tees, the student models wore Kevlar helmets, caution tape belts and bulletproof vests.

“This young man here has a helmet [and] a bullhorn in case he just has to warn somebody there is a shooting here at the school,” announced James Hills, an activist and emcee of the event.

One of the models was 17-year-old Kiara DeJesus from Lawrence.
