UWG organization Models and Business hosted their first fashion show Thursday October 27. The fashion show was held in the Campus Center Ballroom. The ballroom was packed with different organizations, fraternities and sororities as well as parents and siblings.
Like many fashion shows it contained a theme, which was “A Night Undercover.” The models replicated some favorite action-filled movies. Movies like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Skyfall: 007, and Charlie’s Angels, were all brought to life with different designer’s collections.
The fashion show consisted of eight extremely unique designers, three being UWG students. The show also featured Anisa Brenee and Shon Brown, two UWG students, as the hosts to keep the crowd pumped as they awaited the next designer.
The opening scene, “A Night Undercover,” featured an introduction of the models. In order for the crowd to get a preview of who they would see for the remainder of the show, models came out as couples, dressed in all black. Their outfits were not by any designer, but the models fierce looks resulted in major applause from the audience.
Scene two, three and five were all about the ladies. With designs from Shakeria and Jenee Dionne, the models modeled different dresses meant for different parties. Shakeria featured dresses one would wear for the night life while Dionne created gowns meant for more upscale events.
These gowns were unique because they were made using old, worn and forgotten prom dresses. Dionne’s creations involved bringing outdated dresses back to life.
Scene five was themed after Charlie’s Angels with Sayless Boutique, in which the female models mimicked the original angels by coming out in three’s and doing the traditional Charlie’s Angels poses.
The Sayless Boutique collection consisted of creative and trendy pieces, like two-piece sets, dresses and heels. This seemed to be the most popular collection, judging from the crowd’s reaction after the hosts asked if the audience would purchase from this boutique.
Scene four was dedicated to the gentlemen by showcasing the sleekness and style of blazers in all sizes. The blazers were all from the male model’s closets.
During intermission, the audience heard the sounds of freshman singer Destiny Briona. Briona performed her own song “No X” and the Dance Ensemble came on stage after she finished to perform a routine. The show proceeded shortly after.
Megan Chambers, a member on the Eboard for Models and Business, as well as a model for the event, explained the stress that comes with modeling the night of the show.
“It did get pretty difficult at times, especially in the Charlie’s scene when I had to change into two outfits from the same collection,” said Chambers. “The practices were hard and stressful, but when the day came, I was so excited and so proud of the models.”
The show also featured three collections designed by UWG students. Crew, Build Yourself Up and Slaylors Creations closed the show, proving that the students all have the creativity to express themselves through fashion. The Slaylor collection was even created by one of the models, Taylor Edmonds.
To close the show, the models wore shirts representing their organization and danced amongst the audience to Migos’ “Bad and Boujee.” Although this was the organization’s first fashion show and UWG can expect more in the future due to the crowded audience.
