Inside Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) F.A.C.E Fashion Show.
The name “F.A.C.E” was an excellent match as the make-up and hair for the models was done well. The make-up was done by Mandisa Duperval for Sweet Dreams and assisted by Amber Nicole who is a triple threat; (make-up artist, modeling, and stylist). Stephanie Silva and Brandin Jones coordinated the fashion show with assistance from Kayla Glenn, K’la Lawson, Tayler Page, and Alex Rodriguez. Thou, it’s not customary for coordinators to be in their shows, SCSU made it work. Nevertheless, it only leaves the question of the amount of anxiety and work that comes with pulling double duties on the day of an event.
The host needed to be changed; Slay Washington was not funny and un-entertaining, leaving one to think, if this was the reason many people escape midway or during intermission. The stage was left empty for long periods, and gave the impression of not being organized; though it took months, to put this fashion show production together. The favorite collection of the night was “Resort Line” Aquila Yannic featuring Mad House. The Resort Collection was well done, and ready to wear clothing that fit the models with perfection and the only applaud given by Longe’s Creative Director. The runway had collections from Unamerican, IODI, Jean Evy, O, Clothing from Men Warehouse, The blaze collection, Muder$hewrote and China.
The models included and not limited to; Tye Bell, Ashlee Bowman, Stevie Buchanan, Jamarr Daniels, Shaina Donaldson, Mimi Edouard, Jeremy Grier, Eboni Hylton, Phylicia Lilly, Brandon Martin, Shantalle Martin, Valencia Mckoy, Niasia Mercado Kojo Owusu-Ansah, Vania Petit-Frere, Shamayra Rodriquez, Janirhar Scotland, Aisha Sharp, Fatu sheriff, Amanda Sowah, Louise Sylvain, Alisha Wallace, Michelle Williams, Mwamba Williams, Sheborn Woodley, and more.
