The Fashion Network will host its third annual fashion show on Thursday, April 23, at
8 p.m. in the Fish Bowl.

The theme for this year’s show is New York City streetwear. Models will wear casual clothing such as hoodies and jeans as they walk the runway, showing off their style with a New York flare.

This year’s show will differ greatly from previous years as it will feature designs made by students from Post and other universities. In the past most of the clothes for the show were donated from local boutiques. The Student Body Boutique will also contribute clothes for the event.

Members of the Fashion Network are attempting to get all kinds of students to model in and attend the show. In the past, students who modeled in the show were mostly female, according to Hema Chimpidi, junior fashion merchandising major and president of the Fashion Network. Since streetwear is a unisex, theme she hopes that more male students will be able to model this year.

Admission to the event will cost $5 for students, and $10 for non-students. This year 15
percent of proceeds will be donated to Delivering Good, a nonprofit organization that
gives items such as books, clothing and toys to children in need.

If any students are interested in designing clothes or modeling for the event ,they can
contact the Fashion Network at Post-fashionnetwork@my.liu.edu.
