The Arts Collective’s fourth annual fashion show will be held on Sunday, Dec. 5, and looks to be the biggest ever, with more than seven teams of designers working to create their own fashion lines in both clothing and makeup. Every designer and every model is an HWS student. They range in skill and expertise level from those just interested in fashion to members of the Arts Collective Club and studio art majors.
According to Lucia Berliner ’12, one of the co-organizers of the fashion show, the anticipation for it is massive and, because of the size of the event, the Arts Collective is hoping to use it as a fundraiser for charity yet to be determined.
The Arts Collective Fashion Show was introduced four years ago by Anne Lindenhovius ’09, Yeasmine Khalique ’10 and Meghan Schmidt ’10 and has been growing steadily every year.
What began as a small event in a ballroom had moved to the Vandervort Room by its second year, even though there were only two collections represented. By the third year, the show had many different and exciting collections and completely filled the Vandervort Room. With seven collections to show, the event this year will begin at 6:30 p.m., in the Vandervort Room of the Scandling Campus Center.
