The public can get a jump on the next fashion trend when California State University, Northridge apparel design and merchandising students showcase their most stylish creations at CSUN’s annual spring fashion show on Saturday, April 26.

The show, scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. in the Northridge Center of the University Student Union, throws the spotlight on the university’s graduating design and merchandising students. Seventeen students will present their collections of five to six different looks with the help of student volunteer models who will “walk the runway.”

“Our theme this year is ‘FANTASY: Once Upon a Dream,’” said Shirley Warren, apparel design and merchandising faculty and faculty producer of the fashion show. “It all beautifully comes together as the designers take us on a journey, showcasing their collections on the runway.”

A panel of judges will determine the night’s winner based on their creative presentation and technical ability. They will present prizes and awards provided by their major sponsor, Fashion Supplies Inc. Other sponsors include Milani Cosmetics and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Television personality and alumnus Rick Garcia of CBS2 News will host the evening. The fashion show is a collaboration between CSUN’s apparel design and merchandising fashion show production class in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences and TRENDS, a nonprofit, student-run organization.

Tickets are $15 for students, $20 general admission through the Associated Students Box Office. For more information about the Associated Students Box Office please visit http://www.csun.edu/as/ticket-office or call (818) 677-2488.
