On January 28, Alpha Kappa Psi organization hosted a fashion show called “Project Runway Black Out” in the Leon Cole Auditorium.
The doors opened at 6:30 p.m. and the show ended approximately 8:30 p.m.
John Morton was the executive producer of the fashion show, however, other organizations and volunteers also helped make this fashion show possible.
Guests were asked to donate three dollars before walking into the auditorium.
There was a diversity of songs playing during the fashion show.
The models included people from different organizations. The models walked down a black carpet and posed for the photographer as if they were at a photo shoot.
All the models walked with confident smiles and had every guest’s attention.
Clothes from Dillards, Old Navy and Swank Boutique clothing store were the fashionable trends on display for everyone to see.
The show also consisted of comedy performances, a dance performance, R&B/Rap performance and a small, entertaining competition from selected volunteers in the audience.
Volunteers had to make a fashionable outfit out of a black trash bag onto a human manikin.
After the show, John Morton thanked everyone for attending, volunteers, models, clothing stores and other organizations that helped make the show a success.
