Annual Spring Fashion Show
The 2nd Annual Spring Fashion Show and Expo will be hosted by Immaculata University’s Fashion Merchandising program and Wings for Success on Saturday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Great Hall. All ticket proceeds benefit Wings for Success, a local nonprofit which provides work-appropriate attire and advice to disadvantaged women seeking employment.
Jennifer Lewis-Hall, host and anchor of WPHL-17’s Eye Opener morning show, will serve as emcee of the Fashion Show and Expo. The event showcases fashions from two popular Philadelphia boutiques including Lele Tran of US*U.S. and Kristy and Stef Emery of Orgotton; a “Project Runway” style competition; fashion and beauty vendors; and three workshops presented by experts: Dressing for Your Body Type; Spring Fashion Trends; or Sustainable Fashion. A silent auction of designer accessories will also be available.
“Wings for Success is the perfect partner for our Fashion Merchandising program, allowing our students to experience ‘fashion with a purpose,’” commented Chris Baeza, Immaculata University Fashion Merchandising program director and moderator for one of the workshops.
The Fashion Merchandising program at Immaculata University incorporates core values and business dynamics into the program to support the rising trend of “fashion with a conscience.” The program provides students with a background in fashion, business, and liberal arts, and provides many hands-on learning experiences.
Advanced registration of $50 is recommended and may be completed online by March 14. A limited number of tickets will be available the day of the event for $65.
