The day after the International Club Fall Fashion Show, all anyone could talk about was the Fashion Show. More than 200 people attended the event hosted in the Auditorium, and the show featured 30 models, three hosts, a backstage director, a photographer, videographer, and a backstage crew.
“The International Club Fall Fashion Show was a show to embrace cultures, creativity, and student’s abilities to create and inspire,” said International Club President Joel Matondo. “The energy was electric. Every voice in the crowd roared throughout the auditorium and you could just feel the enthusiasm in the room. The excitement carried from the beginning to the end of the show. Every attendee was smiling ear to ear, and it was visible through their masks.”
Joel said the purpose of the event was to fundraise money for the Haitian refugees. The inspiration was an accumulation of other colleges hosting very similar events such as an “African Night” or “Cultural Night”.
Although planning such a large and complex event must have been stressful, Joel and the International Club made it look seamless. Joel said:
“I am most proud of being able to say that I was able to put the show together, raise funds for an important cause, and bring the electric energy throughout the campus.”
