A unique learning experience beyond the classroom. Open to all students, The Fashion Group’s purpose is to develop and promote fashion industry professionals.
We will achieve our mission by attending fashion shows, fashion events, hosting guest speakers and performing community service.
We produce an annual Fashion Show that benefits Wings for Success, a local nonprofit that provides work-appropriate attire and advice to disadvantaged women seeking employment. The Fashion Show also features local boutiques and emerging designers. These partnerships with Wings for Success and with local small businesses help support the community and allow our students to experience “fashion with a purpose.”
