Olivet’s fashion show, sponsored by the Student Unit of Family and Consumer Sciences and the Multi Ethnic Relations Club (MERC), provided students searching for new outfits with inspiration and clothing.

The show took place March 17 in Chalfant and featured 12 different styles, including clothes from shops such as Gap, Old Navy, Francesca’s, Maurices and JCPenney, as well as local designer Emily Sifrit.

The two coordinators for the event, seniors Corrie Everson and Emily Wood, planned and executed the show.

“The show went really well,” Everson said. “We were so surprised at the turnout and at how smoothly it ran. We had an awesome group of people helping us backstage, and the tech crew was fantastic.”

Models wearing clothes ranging from vintage outfits to formal wear shared the spotlight, with videos featuring each style.

“There was a video before most segments with students expressing what they felt each style entailed,” model and sophomore Anna Deputy said.

A casual reception followed the show.

“During that time, attendees were able to browse around the vendor’s tables that were selling some of the accessories that were featured in the show, as well as some other homemade jewelry and quirky gift items,” Everson explained.

During the reception, MERC sponsored a booth showcasing international styles.

All in all, the coordinators believed the show was a success.

“Emily and I were extremely pleased with the outcome this year,” Everson said, as every seat in the house was filled the night of the fashion show.
