Keuka College’s Multicultural Student Association (formerly the Bearers of Ancient Kultures Club) will hold its 10th annual fashion show Saturday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Weed Physical Arts Center.
Some 30 Keuka College students, along with seniors from Penn Yan Central School, will take part in the event that that raises funds for sickle cell anemia research.
One of the highlights will be a performance by David Rush, who had a hit single (Shooting Star) in 2009 and is touring with Pitbull. The DJ is Rochester-based DJ Gweedo, who has performed at Pulse Nightclub, The Penny Arcade, Pineapple Jacks, and Frequency’s Night Club.
Some of the modeling scenes include “Recycled,” “Urban Style,” “Inner Animal,” and “Embracing Your Culture.” Poetik Clothing Co. has donated clothes for a scene.
Senior Allie Walker, a Penn Yan resident, is executive director of the fashion show while senior Ngoc (Ruby) Nguyen, a former fashion model in her native Vietnam, heads up the Fashion Show Committee. Poetik, Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), and the Office of Alumni and Family Relations are sponsors of the event.
Tickets are $4; $2 for faculty and staff and may be purchased at the door. Students are free. Ticket buyers have the option of upgrading to VIP status for an additional $1.
