On March 31, 2012, I had the joy of participating in the Loyola University Chicago Black Cultural Center‘s fifth annual fashion show. This is my second year participating as a model. It is always a great opportunity to be involved in a collaborative effort like this, because along with the hard work, I get to meet new people, especially first year students.
In preparation for the fashion show, we work with a consulting company. They help us find local designers to wear clothes for the show, and they train us to walk and pose like professional models. It is always nerve wracking in the beginning, especially for me, because I can be shy. But the confidence does come out eventually, and practicing for the show ends up being a lot of fun.
The staging and lighting were great, and the audience enjoyed the show as well. This is an event that I definitely look forward to at Loyola every year.Tags: Black Cultural Center, fashion show, Loyola University Chicago, Student Events, Student Organizations
