Hi Fashion Association! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

THANK YOU to everyone who helped out along the way with the Trashion Show! The show was amazing and the IAC really appreciated everything we did for them.

This Wednesday, April 4 we will be putting together the invitations for the style show and making a banner to hang in the oak grove for the fashion zoo. This is usually our off week but we would appreciate your help! We will be in Ackerman 212. Please come help if you can!

The spring style show is April 24 in the Allenwood Restaurant (basement of Ackerman). The show begins at 11:45 and models will need to be there by 10:30. If you are interested in modeling please email me (HBKQ)! We will have a letter that will get you excused from class.

The Fashion ZOO fashion show will be on April 14 at 7:00 in the Folgers Conference room (by the soda machines). Tickets will be $5. If you have family or friends coming to the show you will be able to get tickets early or you can purchase them at the door.

Some designers still need models! If you are interested in modeling or know someone who wants to model please email Brittany ASAP (BXYP).

Please save all toilet paper and paper towel rolls for decorations for the Fashion ZOO! We will be putting a box in the alcove to collect them.

Fashion Week 2012 Wrap Up

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Hello everyone! I am so thrilled to be writing a post for the Fashion Association of IUP! For those of you who don’t know, 2012 Fall Collections have been presented by numerous designers from all over the world since February 8th. Designers such as Oscar de la Renta with his Jackie O. inspired garments and Balenciaga’s 80s retro looks have put the old gloom and doom of fall/winter into an array of pastels and punchy colors. Other designers such as Matthew Williamson and Mulberry step it up with avant-garde patterns and colors that might not normally go together, but somehow these designers make it look like the best thing next to slice bread. I am very pleased by many designers’ collections because they took the norm of fall which is really more about dark and neutral colors and they turned it upside down to make the cold season more fun and exciting.
