I am very excited about the level of quality we've been able to showcase, said BCCC associate professor Sally Di Marco, coordinator of the Fashion Design program. "This year's fashion show will feature an eclectic mix of clothing reflecting classic lines, changing silhouettes, and a variety of styles.

As part of the preparation, students in the Fashion Show Production class and their instructor, Ms. Katarina Kozarova, coordinated this year's show under the guidance of

professional fashion show planners Jennifer Smith, senior production assistant, and Duane Walker, production assistant. Student Erin Kennedy is the show's modeling director. The BCCC Fine Arts program, in collaboration with Fashion Design students and personnel, will assist in the creation of set designs.

Local disc jockey Michael Boggs will provide event music. Videographer David Hernandez is slated to record the entire show.

Gibson and fellow classmates, who conceived the idea of an annual show reflecting students artistic visions, talents and aesthetics. The show has become a highlight of the academic year.
