A fashion show will showcase many products and brands that will be available in the Campus Store and feature the music of The Kirkhouse Band.
The show is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Mar. 23 in the lobby of The Campus Store. New items from Fossil, Vera Bradley and other merchandisers will be on display.
“We’re going to display a lot of things that students don’t know we have – a lot of students know about our Vera Bradley – but not everyone is aware that we sell Fossil watches and different brands,” said Jessica Owens, operations specialist of The Campus Store. “Our goal is to make more students aware of the different clothing and items we have in The Campus Store, and also to have an opening debut for ACU’s new salon that will be opening in April.”
The Fashion Show will also offer an opportunity for student organization members to participate and demonstrate their ACU pride.
“In order to enter into the Fashion Show you must be involved in an ACU organization. Anywhere from a Chapel group to a social club.” Owens says. “We want to have students in the show who are already involved on campus, and for them to come show their passion and excitement for ACU.”
The Campus Store fashion show entry deadline is Feb. 17. Organization leaders believe the show will serve as a great opportunity to display what the store is all about.
“It’s just a time to mesh with the student body and let them know what we have and what we have to offer and give them the opportunity to be proud of ACU and be proud of what we have,” Owens said.
Scott Harsh, assistant director of The Campus Store, said the show is also a chance to exhibit student talents while featuring Campus Store products.
“We like doing the fashion show to highlight new styles and items that are coming in, and also to give students a platform to showcase different gifts that they have and to be able to participate to team with students to draw more interest into the fashions that we’re offering in the store,” Harsh said.
