Fashion show teaches how to dress professionally

Kappa Delta Pi, Mercyhurst College’s education honor society, is having a “rags-to-riches” fashion show where students will model inexpensive professional clothes.

The fashion show is Saturday, March 27, at 3 p.m. in Taylor Little Theatre.

The point of the fashion show is to “show everyone that you don’t have to spend tons of money just to look professional,” junior and Kappa Delta Pi advertising committee member Christina Borelli said.

The models will be wearing clothes that are acceptable in the professional world, but the outfits will cost only $10 each.

The show will have apparel for males and females and is not only for education majors.

The honor society encourages non-education majors to attend, Borelli said.

“Everyone is going to have to dress professionally at one point in their life, so this show is for everyone,” Borelli said.

Twenty Mercyhurst College students and two non-student volunteers will model in the show.

“The show is going to be a lot of fun, and we really think it’s important for everyone to see that professional dress can be affordable,” Borelli said.

The show is a fund-raiser for Kappa Delta Pi, but the honor society also plans to donate some of their proceeds.

Tickets for the event are $3 each and can be purchased the night of the event at the door.

Tickets will tentatively be sold in Egan Dining Hall on March 17, 23 and 24.
