The cafeteria on Ocean campus turned into a runway show as students of the Fashion Direction Coordination class organized and arranged the event finding outfits, models and hair and makeup artists as part of their final project on Nov. 11.
Department Chair Diane Green sat in the audience, grading the work of the team composed by students Darin Prakittipoom, Sara Ljung, Boin Kim and Lesha Lacy. The entire class was divided into four groups of four to five people each. They put four different shows together in November and December.
The class’ goal wasn’t for the student to design their lines, but to experience the managing work behind a fashion show.
“After class you should be able to run a show,” team leader Prakittipoom said.
Prakittipoom and Ljung found inspiration for the collection in stores such as Goodwill and Heroine boutique. They borrowed clothes and matched them with accessories they found among team and models.
Green was pleased with the result and is looking forward to the spring event where fashion students will actually design their collection and organize the annual Ruby Skye Fashion Show.
