Fashion INC. club to feature student designers at spring show

Fashion INC. spring fashion show - 2015 curtain call

(March 10, 2016) – The Fresno State Fashion INC. student club will host its sixth annual Spring Fashion Show from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, March 12 at the Satellite Student Union.

Admission is free with a student, faculty or staff ID and $5 to the general public.

More than 40 designs and styles by five student designers will be showcased ranging from casual to evening wear and outfits from the Fresno State Campus Development Center Clothing Closet.
The biggest event of the year for the 15-student club will consist of opening and closing dance performances, a runway show and mini-art show by Fresno State students.

Spectators can enter a raffle for gift baskets and gift cards. After the event, they can meet the designers and enjoy refreshments.

“The fashion show is a great way for us to showcase the creative skills of our students,” said club president Danika Brumbeloe, a senior. “Each year we love including students from other majors such as theater and dance, and this year we’re excited to expand to art students, too. The show has become an artistic outlet that allows students to apply their skills with real hands-on experience.”

This year’s theme is "Art Off the Canvas" and encourages students to pick an artist, art style or work of art to inspire their collections.

The event has received funding by Associated Students, Incorporated and hair and make-up styling from Paul Mitchell and the Makeup Imaginarium,

The club is sponsored by the fashion merchandising program and is part of the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology and Department of Child, Family and Consumer Sciences.

“This event takes an incredible amount of coordination and planning and is overseen completely by our students,” said Dr. Lizhu Davis, club advisor and fashion merchandising professor. “Students leave the show with long-lasting memories from all their hard work and extra momentum to follow this path as a career. For those attending the show it's a great chance to support our students, learn about the club and our fashion merchandising program. It all makes for a fun Saturday night.”
