Fashion Management Club’s Fashion for Charity fashion show

Old Brick Church — April 19, at 11 a.m. — 1 p.m.

Making the case that it’s not the price tag that makes clothing fashionable, the University of Iowa’s Fashion Management Club is putting on its second annual Fashion for Charity fashion show this Sunday at Old Brick Church.

For the show, members of the Fashion Management Club have styled outfits from clothes gathered during a charitable clothing drive that the club that began in late March.

“We have been planning since this spring semester started,” said Fashion Management CLub president Morgan Buisker. “It has been beneficial to us having one year of experience under our belts. The preparation is running smoothly and we are more organized.”

New this year will be the presence of Iowa City clothing stores Tailgate Iowa, Mayfair, Artifacts and The White Rabbit, who will showcase looks in the fashion show. Prior to the show will be a light brunch and networking hour where attendees can meet with representatives from fashion-related businesses and organizations like Pink, Almvghty, Her Campus, Ellison, Iowa Retail Association and Stella & Dot.

All clothing received by the group during the March clothing drive will be donated to United Action for Youth, an organization that provides a variety of services to area youth. Tickets for the event can be purchased online.

In addition to the Fashion For Charity fashion show, the Fashion Management Club hosts a variety of other events for students interested in working in fashion, including networking events, lectures with industry professionals, workshops and professional trips. Along with hosting events, the club also has a blog with posts on style tips, thrift shopping and updates on the group’s latest achievements.
