DENTON - The 3rd Annual Fashion at the Fountains at the Willis Library Mall on the campus of the University of North Texas was a display of various talents of the students of the College of Visual Arts and Design at UNT.
The November 4, 2011 event was a special project of the Members of Designing Arts (M.O.D.A.). The goal of the group of students, according to the fashion show's program, is to promote an interest in all areas of fashion, from an array of different majors...to help anyone with an interest in fashion...to learn and grow as students, artists, and entrepreneurs; Fashion at the Fountain is an exceptional event to ignite innovative inspirations and foster creativity.
Former Post students Marlee Plummer and Kelsey Sanderson were two of the many volunteer students that prepared and conducted the outdoor contest. In Marlee's third year as a member, she serves as M.O.D.A.'s vice president. She, President Shannon Webster and fellow officers worked diligently for a couple of months planning and executing the event intended to give students a venue to showcase their work. In the 2010 event, Plummer participated as a Public Relations officer and helped produce the show.
Kelsey contributed her cosmetologist talents by serving as a hair and make-up artist for the models.
The fashion show, which attracted about 500 viewers, included a design portion and a styling portion which were judged by members of the design and merchandising faculty and professionals from the industry.
All of the 150 entries were designed and produced by 32 UNT student designers and their creations were displayed by about 50 runway models.
The winners of the event were recognized and received cash prizes. From the proceeds, M.O.D.A. will make a donation to Attitudes & Attire, a Dallas based non-profit agency dedicated to promoting personal growth for women seeking self-sufficiency. Their programs provide the tools that raise self-esteem, promote ethics and build the confidence necessary to succeed in the workplace.
