The Students of the Art Institute of Washington will be putting on their winter holiday fashion show entitled “Frosty Fairytale” at the Rosslyn Spectrum on Friday, December 18, at 2pm. The show has been produced by the school’s Fashion and Retail Management Program’s Event and Fashion Show Production Class.This is my kind of fashion show. Unfortunately my day job will prevent me from attending this great fashion show. The Ode Street Tribune would be grateful to anyone who could step up and cover this important neighborhood event.
The Event and Fashion Show production class started their fall quarter session back in October. They came up with the idea of doing a holiday fashion show - but not just any regular holiday show. They wanted to produce a show that would benefit the community. So instead of going out and buying clothes for the fashion show, the students teamed up with Goodwill of Greater Washington D.C. They also organized a clothing drive at their school, which invited their peers to participate in the holiday spirit.
The donated clothes were used to select the runway looks. The result is a refreshing perspective on fashion – unwanted clothes are updated and combined to become relevant again. After the show, all donations will be delivered to Goodwill.
Gossip Boutique ( 566 23rd St S., Arlington) supported the show by supplying accessories to complete the runway looks. The Graham Web Academy will be in charge of hair and make-up.
The concept Frosty Fairytale was not only created to help produce a great show, but to create a meaningful experience. This season should be a selfless one – a season of joy, giving, and hope for the less fortunate. Frosty Fairytale explains that in this frosty holiday season we desire to fulfill someone’s dreams and make their own fairytale come alive.
Come and join AIW’s Event and Fashion Show Production Class as we give back the gift of fashion at the Rosslyn Spectrum, 1611 North Kent Street in Arlington , VA 22209.
Admission is free and clothing donations will be accepted.
