Producing the Show
Every spring semester, students in the Fashion Show Production class come to understand the hard work and intensity required to produce an industry standard, professional runway show. At the beginning of the class, students form committees to tackle every aspect of the fashion show.
The designer committee coordinates with the designers to secure their collection sketches, assist with hair, make-up, music selections and a photo shoot.
The model committee reviews agency model books, organizes fittings and develops a working model lineup for the show.
The dresser committee organizes the hostesses, hosts and dressers to assist the models back stage as well as the design and ordering of t-shirts for the show.
The stage and technical committee arrange for delivery of cosmetic/gift bags from the show’s supporters, the table centerpieces, and the coordination of the sound, lighting, and photography of the show.
The advertising committee solicits advertisements, finalizes the program, and coordinates public relations activities.
Finally, the silent auction committee follows up with potential donors at the beginning of the semester, obtains auction items from the donors, and assists with silent auction at the event.
All committees transport and set up the fashion show and insure that all equipment is returned. Of course, no committee would be successful without the leadership of several coordinators who provide guidance and direction to the class. The culmination of all the hard work is a perennially successful event.
