The Black Student Union’s 48th Annual Fashion Show is set to feature the diversity that the UT campus offers. This year’s theme, “All Around the World,” will showcase fashion from countries across the globe that many students call home.
“There will be four countries presented throughout the show,” said MeKayla Pullins, president of the Black Student Union. “The countries represented are Brazil, Jamaica, India and China.”
Pullins explained how this year’s theme was chosen: “Each year around the middle of the fall semester, we hold scene director auditions. These auditions consist of a vision of the show, giving the students a wide and open range of creativity and originality. This year we chose the theme ‘All Around the World,’ which was presented to us by one of the executive board members of BSU, Kyndra Gaines.”
The event will take place Friday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for general admission, and $15 for VIP seating in the front row, meet-and-greet with the host, and hors d’oeuvres prior to the show. They are available for purchase at Ask Rocky, and will be at the door for $15 and $20, respectively.
All proceeds from the fashion show go toward scholarships to support African-American students.
