LIM College 2019 Fashion Show: “The Journey of the Diamond”
April 5, 2019
LIM College’s annual student fashion show, titled "The Journey of the Diamond," will be held at the Hammerstein Ballroom on April 5, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.
“The Journey of the Diamond” will explore the different stages that a diamond must go through in order to become a polished jewel. The event will feature more than 40 models, representing LIM’s diverse student body. The LIM College Dance Team will open the show with a special performance.
The host of this year’s show will be celebrity stylist and lifestyle expert Dennis Kenney. Having styled celebrities and on-air personalities for Good Morning America, the Emmys, the SAG Awards, and numerous film premieres, Dennis is a creative force in the fashion world and the founder of “Style With Den.”
“LIM College’s Fashion Show Production Club has worked hard to create a runway event that will highlight the unique journey of the diamond,” says Co-Director Lucinda Palmer.
“We will showcase a varied array of looks that convey the story of the way a rough diamond is transformed to a polished one,” adds Styling Director Charenelle Thompson.
LIM’s Fashion Show Production Club provides students with a hands-on educational experience in planning and producing a professional-level New York City fashion show.
While students do not design or create the garments featured on the runway, they are responsible for every other aspect of the production of the event—from lighting and music to seating and model selection—making the stakes of creating a memorable show feel as high as producing one for New York Fashion Week. All clothing and accessories featured in the show will be chosen by students working in collaboration with designer showrooms throughout New York City.
Each year, over 1,000 guests attend the LIM College Fashion Show. 2019 marks the show’s 75th continuous year, as well as LIM College’s 80th anniversary.
