Themes draw from Michael Jackson, fairy tales, and the homeless

On Tuesday, November 10th, Prof. Ionia Dunn Lee's Fashion Show Production classes staged a fashion show with a three-part theme. Prof. Dunn Lee's three sections of the class each chose their own theme, and the three classes collaborated in producing the show. The themes were "Hot Mess," where students turned to the homeless for inspiration and the clothes were made from materials that could be found on the streets, like paper, plastic bags, or duct tape. "Mesmerizing Mischief" was inspired by Disney characters and fairy tales in general, with entries informed by The Little Mermaid, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Wicked Witch in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The third theme, called "Moonwalk" in a tribute to Michael Jackson, was complete with military jackets and single gloves.

In Prof. Dunn Lee's classes, the students learn all the elements that go into producing a fashion show, and the fashion show they produce is their final project.
