Fashion Show!

One of the things I'm most involved with here on Campus is the Women in Business Club. I serve on the executive board as Events Director and I work with the rest of the board to plan fun and educational activities for our school. Well, last night I saw the culmination of literally months of work... Our first annual FASHION SHOW!

And what would a post be without talking about the clothes?

Along with the rest of the WIB board, I had been working on the details of this event since last summer, and I was SO excited for the fashion show yesterday. It was such a great learning experience to see what all goes into planning an event like this. We had to (get ready, this is a long list...) rent the staging, reserve the area, estimate attendance counts, order catering, find the models, get the models fitted, obtain financial sponsors, find local clothing stores willing to participate, style the outfits, write the script, get an MC, find a DJ, pick music for the DJ, set everything up, practice with the entire set-up, advertise the event, print programs, and then coordinate outfit changes during the show. It was so much work, but definitely worth it.

Our main purpose with this event was to show students some great examples of showing your personality while dressing in Casual, Business Casual, Business Professional, and Business Formal. We also had some interview tips and other helpful information from our career center, who partnered with us to host the event. Something I thought was especially awesome was the fact that we were able to get guy models (and a local Men's store to sponsor!) It really surprised me at how many guys showed up for the show too. I guess it just goes to show that we girls aren't the only ones who like a little inspiration!


  1. Great initiative! The fellas love to shine too! They are into fashion too! Maybe we can follow each other?

  2. Wow...looks like an awesome event. This is such a great idea! I definitely think a lot of students could use a lesson on professional dress!
