FASHION SHOW HELD AT MGC
(Cochran, GA) – Middle Georgia College’s Fashion Club recently held its 2011 Fashion Show for students, faculty, and community members at Walker Hall Auditorium. The show was hosted by Gary Reeves and featured the MGC dance team Sway. The show was also used to raise awareness of HIV/Aids.
Antonio Lemon, the Fashion Club president, came up with the theme by looking through past shows. “I wanted something different,” he said. “So I thought about how music influences fashion.”
The models wore clothes styled by the creative team, led by Lemon. “There are so many creative people at MGC, and everyone helped,” he said. Everyone on the team came up with one scene, and then ran it by Lemon. Other creative team members included Megan Fullerton, Danielle Brown, Contrell Simms, LaDarien Hall, Natasha Morgan, as well as Bretanya Rogers and Nick Glass, who were walking coaches for the models.
The clothes from the show were purchased mostly from thrift stores, with the exception of the high fashion portion of the show, where the clothes were purchased from a boutique, said Lemon. “We took the old stuff and revamped it,” he said. “We made it new, and I even made some stuff.”
LaVette Burnette, an assistant professor of speech and the Fashion Club advisor, said the show was one of the best they’ve ever had. “The students enjoyed it,” she said. “The show had good sequencing and good quality.”
Bretanya Rogers said the show was something new for her. “I’ve never really done anything with fashion, but it opened up my eyes,” she said. “I really enjoyed it.”
Lemon said the show has set the bar high for upcoming shows. “I think it’s the best show the school has ever had,” he said. “I can’t wait to see what they come up with next year.”
