Strength of Student Organizations: Modista, Fashion Journalism, FSO…

I have been able to sit in on a few of The Fashion School student organization events recently and am really pleased at the added value that these groups provide for the School. The strong interest in these groups demonstrates how vibrant and diverse The Fashion School is. The student-run initiatives also play a key role in helping to continue to increase the diversity of experiences our students can have by becoming part of this community.

Fashion Journalism Club informational meeting

A brand new student organization, The Fashion Journalism Club was launched last week, with an informational meeting on tuesday night in Rockwell Hall. I was impressed with the number of students who showed up for this meeting, as well as the fact that every single one of them was ready to sign up for a task so that they could start blogging/writing and sending in stories for their College Fashionista website affiliation.

Modista, The Fashion School Student Organization that places supporting minority students at the heart of their mission,

Daisy Lewellyn - The Queen of Effortless Chic

hosted a great event in the Kent Student Center last Thursday evening. They brought in Daisy Lewellyn, known as the “Queen of Effortless Chic” in to talk to students about “Fashion Do’s” and “Fashion Don’ts” when working in the industry. She had everyone completely engaged, including using audience members to act out scenarios in which everyone else would vote on the “Do or Don’t” aspect.

The student group that has been around the longest in The Fashion School, Fashion Student Organization, has also been actively preparing for a three-showing fashion show event that they are hosting this friday and saturday as a means to raise money to support need in Haiti. I am looking forward to seeing what comes out!
