This past Saturday, Genesee Community College hosted yet another incredibly successful fashion show. Fata Morgana proved to be one of the most exciting and creative fashion shows that GCC has ever seen. There was an afternoon show at 3:00 PM, and an evening show at 7:00 PM. Between those two shows, there were 1,640 people that attended.
Prior to the show, there was a great deal of preparation to be done by the Fashion and Event Planning students. Decorations, food preparation and rehearsals were all on the agenda Friday night. Many students worked late into the night to complete the final necessary touches.
Upon entering GCC to see the show, attendees had the option to purchase flower bouquets for any of the participants. Staying true to the theme, there were belly dancers who performed before the modeling began. After this ended, attendees had the opportunity to see firsthand what the GCC fashion students had been working on all semester.
Following the show, there was a reception for all attendees and models of the fashion show. This was put on by the Event Planning students. Everyone was able to enjoy the various foods, vendors and activities which were provided. Fata Morgana was a very well received and successful show. It was also an excellent opportunity for the students involved to learn skills which will be beneficial to them in the future.
