Up and down the runway and across Bryan and College Station, A&M students will be modeling local styles in a week of events to highlight fashion arts, local artists and professionals, and most importantly, local charities and non-profits. The event, Fashion Week BCS, will be a five-day showcase of local art, fashion and music. Proceeds will benefit CarPool, Habitat for Humanity, and Brazos Valley Community Action Agency.
Paige Melvin “08, a graduate student in the marketing department, is the chief organizer of the event. Through the week of fun and fashion, she hopes to emphasize the development and appreciation of the arts in the community. Melvin has partnered with local businesses, designers, and artists to produce the five days of activities that mirror similar events in cities like New York, Paris, and Milan.
With an ultimate goal to give back to the community, Melvin has secured donations from local businesses totaling nearly $40,000 in in-kind gifts.
Fashion Week BCS will kick off for the public at Revolutions CafÃ© and Bar in downtown Bryan. It will culminate at Daisy Duke’s with a finale fashion show. For more specific information about the times and locations of events, go to fashionweekbcs.com.
