GCC announces 37th annual fashion show

By on February 12, 2018

The Fashion Program students at Genesee Community College are proud to announce the 37th Annual Fashion Show. The theme this year is “Ascendant” which carries two separate but equally important definitions. First, “Ascendant” speaks to the rising power GCC has in communicating fashion. This show is the culmination of student learning and it truly delivers the message that fashion is not only thoughtful, but impactful.

Secondly, the term ascendant represents the very first moment of a new day when the sun’s path crests the eastern horizon. It typically describes a person’s rising sign – the exact moment of one’s birth, dictating by calendar, the astrological sign under which a person is born. Astrological signs have been used to describe character traits of those born under each sign; just one way in which groups of people differ from one another. The “Ascendant” theme moves beyond recognizing these differences and to use fashion to make statements about moving to appreciate those differences as potential contributions to creative teamwork.

“Ascendant” promises to be a bigger production than ever. It will take place on the 24,000 square foot indoor field house in the brand new Richard C. Call Arena which will be transformed into a dreamlike area by the Fashion Program students. With plenty of space and accommodations for 2,000 guests, the students will be putting on one huge production. The only show will be on Saturday, April 28 at 7 p.m.

Tickets to attend the show are available in advance for $5 per person until 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25. After that, tickets will be available at the door for $8 per person. To purchase tickets in advance, email fashionshow@genesee.edu today.
