Campus Preview: International fashion show

The DASB Senate plans to host an international fashion show on Nov. 21 in conference rooms A and B at De Anza College’s Hinson Campus Center.

The event will feature students strutting down a runway in multicultural ensembles, in addition to offering global cuisine and entertainment.

“The way you dress describes you,” said DASB chair of diversity and events Jason Tran. “What better way to represent all the cultures at De Anza than to have a fashion show and announce where this clothing was made, what it was made out of and what it represents?”

Tran said media could be a source of misrepresentation.

“The media doesn’t always show everything about other cultures,” he said, “so I’m hoping that De Anza students will notice that there’s so much to know about the cultures of other people on campus.”

Zaneb Khan, DASB chair of marketing, pointed out the appeal of a fashion show.

“I’d rather reach out to the student body this way, rather than reaching out to people who’d read a boring PowerPoint explaining each culture,” Khan said.

The committee has enlisted other campus organizations such as ¡LEAD! to participate in the fashion show and hopes to recruit at least two student to model clothes for each represented culture.

Students who participate in the fashion show as models will receive $5 gift cards.

“All of us – the committee, the models, the performers – must work together before the fashion show,” said Khan. “We want to create and show a sense of unity to the people.”
