Community members of all ages should save the date for Genesee Community College’s 29th Annual Fashion Show. This year’s much anticipated show is entitled “Luxe” and will leave its viewers in awe with each elaborate and unique scene. “Luxe” draws inspiration from the edgy and alluring aspects of the ever-changing world of fashion.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of the program, the event continues to offer two shows scheduled for Saturday, April 24, 2010 at 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM, in the William W. Stuart Forum of the Batavia Campus. Tickets for the show are available for $5 in advance or $7 at the door and can be purchased by calling 585-345-6830. Advance tickets are strongly recommended.
"I know that this year's students have the charisma, talent, and enthusiasm to produce one of the best shows this college has seen in a long time," said Rick Dudkowski, Genesee Community College’s business professor who oversees the entire two-semester capstone project. “It is also very exciting to see the fashion students collaborating with other programs in the school to produce such an unforgettable event!”
The event combines the interests and academic pursuits of several other College departments as well. The College’s Hospitality Management students work under Genesee instructor Amy Slusser to coordinate extensive ‘front of the house’ operations such as refreshments, décor, door prizes, music and light refreshments, and the overall festive ambience. In addition, Genesee’s Criminal Justice students will be behind the scenes ensuring safety and security from the moment visitors arrive in the parking lot to the very end of the night, when the show has long been over. Graphic Art students at Genesee, under the direction of Pamela Swarts, have also contributed art work for the posters and programs.
Sponsors for the production are still being accepted. Business donations of $10.00 or personal donations of $5.00 are available. To extend appreciation, the business or personal name will be included in the souvenir program and the fashion show’s website. If writing a check please make checks payable to GCCA.
