Hackettstown, N.J.  – Centenary College’s “Fashion Coordination and Promotion” course will be managing the institution’s Fall Fashion Show, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. December 5, 2013, at the John M. Reeves Student Recreation Center.  This event is open to the public. 

The theme for the show is “I Am Fashion” and it will focus on the many diverse looks of fashion.  Some examples will include a “Think Pink” theme outfit, costumes, dresses, hats and independent designer styles. This year, the show will also have an international flair as 14 garments from Ghana will be featured. These outfits were donated by Centenary College Professor Christopher Linne, Associate Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice, who acquired the clothes during a professional development trip to Ghana this summer.
The Fashion Coordination and Promotion class is built around the Fall Fashion Show. The class plans every aspect of the show, from its conception to the night of the big event.  

 “This course provides students with practical experience, so when they graduate, they will have a working knowledge of how to run a fashion show,” says Kristen McKitish, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Merchandising at Centenary College.  “It is also a fun night for members of the community to attend and is an opportunity for our students to showcase their creations, plus see some items that have been donated.”

The cost for advance tickets for student and faculty is $3 with IDs.  Tickets for the general public cost $5, and VIP ticket are $12.  Those with VIP tickets will have access to front-row seats and will receive goodie bags filled with coupons and other treats.  The Fashion Department benefits from the proceeds. Prices at the door will increase to: student and faculty, $5; outside guests, $8.  VIP tickets will not be sold at the door. Show sponsors that provided items for the VIP bags include Avon representative Dawn Bernard, One of a Kind Bowling Club, Giant Gymnastics and Westside Hair Care.
