Another Homecoming Fashion Show is in the books after last week's "For the Culture" show put on by the students of Hampton University. Students, parents and staff all gathered in the Student Center Ballroom to see this annual show Oct. 22.
Although the show seemed effortlessly put together, teams worked for more than a month, enduring long practices, to ensure they put on the best possible show that they could, which means that sometimes practices ran until 2 a.m. However, all the late hours and hard work paid off, because every model presented a sharp performance and artfully presented the brands for which they were modeling.
"The show was a lot of fun!" said HU student Andrew Wilborn, a senior journalism major from Virginia. "It took a lot of hard work and practicing, but I couldn't have asked for a better second-to-last show of my college career."
It was clear that the directors and designers had a clear vision of how they wanted the show to turn out, and it is safe to say that their vision was brought to fruition that night. Everything was clean and precise from the opening of the show when the first model walked down the runway to the final flood. The crowd reciprocated the model's energy which made for an even more successful event.
