Flashing Lights: Black Cultural Center Fashion Show

Flashing Lights: Black Cultural Center Fashion Show

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.

This year, we were able to wear clothes from Plato’s Closet, Enstrumental (photographed above), That Girl Boutique and many more. We even featured a swim suit fashion line for the first time.

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.
