Annual Fashion Show

For more than 30 years, fashion students have completed their studies by enrolling in the capstone Fashion Show Production course. The production is held in the Forum at GCC and has grown to be the largest fashion show in Western New York with approximately 1,600 attendees.  This production offers students a great opportunity to build their portfolios and have hands-on experience. It also allows GCC students, faculty, staff and community members an opportunity to see what they have learned about special events marketing throughout the year.
