Lights! Camera! Fashion!

The Fifth Annual Fashionality Fashion Week is taking place October 8 - 11 at Eastern Michigan University with promises of bigger, better and bolder fashion.

"We want to let our presence be known and we want to uplift our campus community," said Brittni Brown, president of Fashionality. "Because of our hard work, dedication and our supporters, we have brought more fashion and art to Eastern every fall."

This year's theme, "V," celebrates the hard work and dedication it takes to make fashion week a success. Fashionality members are students interested in pursuing careers in fashion design, marketing, public relations and communications.

"We are the first university in the state of Michigan that isn't a school of arts, design or fashion to host a full fledge week dedicated to fashion," Brown said. "We're a collective group of students and alumni from Eastern that hold a love for all areas of art, not just fashion. We create our fashion week to appeal to a wider audience every year."

This year's events include:

  • Monday, Oct. 8: Miss Fashionality Pageant, 7:30 p.m., Student Center Auditorium
  • Tuesday, Oct. 9: Designer Showcase, 7 p.m., Student Center Ballroom B.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 10: Masquerade Celebration, 7 p.m., Student Center room 300. Guests are encouraged to wear masks and semi-formal attire is required.
  • Thursday, Oct. 11: V: The Runway Experience runway show, 8 p.m. in the Student Center ballroom. Nearly 60 men and women will model at the show. Tickets can be purchased at the Eastern Michigan ticket box office or emutix.com. Tickets are $5 and proceeds go to the Lupus Foundation of America (Michigan and Ohio Chapters).

"This year is exciting because we have worked so hard the past four years to give fashion, art and design a bigger name at Eastern," said Brown. "For five years we have helped people develop passions for things they now love. We have been planning for six months to give people a chance to see that hard work does pay off, even for the love of fashion."

Fashionality's mission is to inspire, motivate and stimulate a pattern of success in the creative minds of students at Eastern Michigan University through all aspects of the world of fashion, while promoting academics, healthy living, confidence and self-awareness in the community.
