Standard

By Aleah Libordi

On November 7th, Kento Takayama and Hannah Donnelley announced the theme of the 38th annual Genesee Community College Fashion Show: Limitless. The boundaries to this show are without end. Focusing on the four seasons, each scene will resemble a different aspect of each season. This theme offers more freedom and diversity than ever before, allowing for creativity and expression to drive the show on May 4th, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the Richard C. Call Arena on the Batavia Campus.

After this announcement, all fashion students took part in the annual color draping event. The practice of color draping was developed by Carol Jackson in her 1984 book, Color Me Beautiful. Each student was draped in different colored fabrics to determine the best suit for their skin tone, hair, and eye color. Personal color falls into 4 categories, cool toned winter or summer to warm toned spring or autumn. This is an admired event because it is personal and allows for students to put knowledge into practice. Students now know the colors that best compliment their unique personal color, and know which colors may help them look their best and feel their best. They will be well prepared in their best colors while at future interviews or when purchasing their power suit.

The color draping and fashion show theme reveal event is a much anticipated day for all students.  This day was paramount for fashion students, it ignited excitement and determination for the work ahead. The theme reveal is the first public announcement and official start to fashion show preparation. In the following weeks, students will be presenting their fashion show scene concepts to secure one of the coveted scene coordinator positions for Limitless.
