Wings for Success Fashion Show
Immaculata University is sponsoring the 3rd annual Wings for Success Spring Fashion Show, Fashion Forward, on Saturday, March 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Immaculata University’s Great Hall. Immaculata’s Fashion Merchandising Department will host this event in partnership with Wings for Success, a local non-profit that offers work-appropriate attire, advice and advocacy to women in need who are seeking employment. All proceeds will benefit the work of Wings for Success, which annually serves more than 600 women. Award-winning Philadelphia news anchor, Pat Ciarrocchi, will emcee this fund-raising event.
Tickets are $50 in advance or $65 at the door and can be purchased by calling 610-644-6323 or visiting www.wingsforsuccess.org/event/fashion-show-2017. Participants will enjoy fashions from area boutiques as well as original designs by Immaculata students and noted local designers. This year, several workshops are being offered that focus on rejuvenation, health, and wellness. Brunch is included.
Immaculata’s Fashion Merchandising program incorporates core values and business dynamics 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.
Located on the Main Line in scenic Chester County, 20 miles west of Philadelphia, Immaculata University is a Catholic comprehensive, coeducational institution of higher learning. On November 12, 1920, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania granted a college charter at the request of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) thus making Immaculata the first Catholic women’s college in the region. The IHM Sisters’ mission of educating women for more than 165 years has produced approximately 22,000 alumni worldwide and currently has nearly 3,000 students enrolled in 53 undergraduate majors, seven master’s degree programs, three doctoral degree programs, and over 40 additional professional endorsement, certificate and certification programs. Immaculata University contributes to the development of the whole person of any faith, fostering a commitment to truth, service, justice, and peace.
