The Black Student Union plans to represent UT campus diversity at its 49th Annual Fashion Show Friday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium.

This year’s theme, “Back to the Future,” will showcase fashion derived from multiple cultures around the world and the homes of the multicultural population of the University.

“The ‘Back to the Future’ theme came from our scene director, Jazmine Rice. She’s had a great plan from the start and has a great vision for the theme,” said Keith Boggs, president of the Black Student Union.

The event strives to present students with open creativity and cultural diversity.

There also will be a scholarship award given to the winner of the Black Student Union essay contest.

“I’m very optimistic about this year’s fashion show. Our scene director and special events director, Mekayla Pullins, has been very organized and prepared,” Boggs said. “The scholarship and the show encourages students to participate, and nothing but good comes from that.”

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 for VIP seating in the front row and are available for purchase at Ask Rocky in the Thompson Student Union. Tickets at the door will be $15 and $20, respectively.
