Hackettstown, NJ, March 31, 2013 – Centenary College’s Fashion Coordination and Promotion course will be managing the institution’s semi-annual fashion show, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. April 24, 2014, at the John M. Reeves Student Recreation Center.  This event is open to the public. Members of the community, Centenary’s faculty and staff, and students are encouraged to attend.

This event will feature glamorous formal and semi-formal attire as well as trendy sportswear. This electrifying spring extravaganza will showcase apparel collections of the senior Fashion Design students. These dynamic collections reflect the creative energy and innovative interpretation of our experienced, talented and educated students.
 “Running, managing and participating in a fashion show not only provide students with a hands-on experience, but give them the opportunity to showcase their talents as well as their passion for the fashion industry,” says Kristen McKitish, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Merchandising at Centenary College.  “Members of the community as well as Centenary College can see firsthand just how well the fashion program has developed and grown in the recent years. Our students work hard over the semesters, not only on garments and fashion, but on management and preparations to make this a one-of-a-kind experience for all.”

Tickets are available in the Business Office in the Edward W. Seay Administration Building as of April 3, 2014. Tickets may be purchased Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-sale tickets cost $5 for general admission. General admission is $8 at the door.

Be sure to participate in the raffle as well as several door prizes offered at this event.
