CCM Designs Students to Hit the Runway at the “Metamorphosis” Fashion Show
Student Organized Fashion Show Will Be Held May 2 - Posted 4/15/13
As the end of the spring semester approaches for college students, those studying design at County College of Morris (CCM) are getting ready to present their hard work at CCM’s annual student-run fashion show. The theme of this year’s show is “Metamorphosis.”
The show will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, in the Student Community Center Davidson Rooms on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road. The event, which is open to the public, is sponsored by CCM’s Fashion Club.
The show will be divided into three categories: “Futures” consisting of one or two pieces, “Undercards” with four to six pieces, and “Headliners,” a full collection of eight or more garments. Around 30 student designers will show their design and garment construction skills. The highlight for the student designers will be finding out who earned the honor of closing the show for the quality of his or her design and garment construction. The student who closes the show is chosen by the Design department faculty.
Pamela Mina of Randolph and Katie Hopkins of Rockaway, president and vice president respectively of the Fashion Club, have been instrumental in coordinating fundraisers, club meetings and advertising the event while maintaining full-time status as students at CCM and holding part-time jobs as well, according to Kelly Whalen, assistant professor in the Visual Arts department. The show has truly evolved into a student-run event,” noted Whalen.
Other participating students will work as designer assistants, models, stage technicians, stylists, MCs, DJs and support staff.
Tickets are $15 through April 26, $18 from April 27 – May 2, and also can be purchased at the door for $20.
