Annual Fashion Show

The Fashion Program students at Genesee Community College announced the 39th Annual Fashion Show will take over the Richard C. Call Arena on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 7 p.m. and no one should miss this “Ebullition” in Fashion!

Earlier in the semester, GCC’s Fashion Program student Yuuka Sano unveiled the 39th Annual Fashion Show theme as “Ebullition” As the theme dictates, this show will be an eruption of emotion expressed through fashion. Each scene in the show will be connected through a series of introspective garment selections with specific colors and textures to reflect authentic emotions consistent with the Japanese representation “ki do ai raku” meaning happiness, anger, sadness and joy in English.

With an exciting and powerful theme to guide their selections, the students have already begun to audition Scene Coordinators, marketing, advertising, sponsorships and scene garments. In the coming months, GCC students will build and coordinate more than a dozen scenes for the fast-paced, professionally produced show.

Taking full advantage of the 24,000 square foot indoor field house in the Richard C. Call Arena, “Ebullition” will accommodate up to 2,000 guests and offer ample parking. This year’s students are planning a fully immersive production which includes post-show interviews and photo-ops featuring the coordinators of each scene, and a reception and vendor market. Currently, students are seeking vendors to participate in this portion of the program.
