Hello, this is a message to any individuals who wish to participate.
Please spread the word.
My name is Warren Chin, Vice-President of Phi Alpha Theta (UW's History Club) My
club proposed an event that could affect most clubs on campus. As we took
history courses in our lifetime, not only are we learning world history, but we
are also learning the culture of many other societies as we study their
historical contents. Fashion played a huge part in a society's culture. We are
planning a Fashion Show, not just any 'Fashion Show', it'll be A Historical
Fashion Show: where models would wear traditional cultural outfits from
different time frames, and display them on stage. This brings great unity in our
diverse student organizations. We'll get to learn more about each culture, plus,
we'll have fun.
Here's my Rough Outline of the Fashion Show:
-It'll be held sometime in Spring Quarter 2005.
-Profit from Admission Tickets would be distributed among participating clubs.
-about 15% of profit made on the Fashion Show will be donated to a charity.
-Participating clubs would share expenses (or duties) on advertising of event.
-Depending on participation, Fashion Show average from an hour to 2 hours.
Fashion Show will bring more teamwork among clubs, make new friends, create a
better understanding of other cultures, and have fun. Plus, it's a fundraiser
event for clubs. Weekly or bi-weekly meetings are likely to occur to organize
success of Fashion Show.
Fashion Show was consists of:
-Musical Performances -Closing Act(s)
-(Part A) Traditional Outfits
-(Part B) Modern Outfits that incorporate cultural theme (color, style, etc).
(which all, are original designs, plus incorporate some cultural theme)
Fashion Show will allow talented individuals perform in front of large crowds.
Traditional dances, singing, music, performance, etc will enlighten audience
with rich culture.
Outfits can be:
-handmade from scratch (original):
(allows creative individuals to express their creations artistically, allows
teamwork for club members, allows activities for club members, as well as making
profit if patron buy the outfits after Fashion Show)
-outfits from family, relatives (actual garments):
(traditional garments passed down from generation, allows self to define their
-Outfits from Sponsored Store (new designs):
A store can allow models to wear their designs (outfits); allowed promotion of
store; as well as actually selling the outfits after the Fashion Show [freeadvertisement of products]
In Fashion Show:
-A fashion catalog will be created for Audience. Catalog will list outfits by
numbers, as well as brief description. (Allows audience to follow along as Show
progress) -Announcement of each outfit and description as models come up to
-Clubs could set up booths outside Fashion Show. Provide refreshments/items for
sale for patrons before and after show. (Fundraising for clubs)
-Photographs, Films, onstage and off stage. (Active participation in both sides
After Fashion show
-After-Show Party! All participants celebrate the success and end of the Fashion
That is my Rough Outline for Fashion Show; all we need now is the participation
of clubs that are willing to commit to this event. The more clubs, the better
the show, the greater success of show, and maybe it'll be on the news!
