Fashion club holds Art & Gift Fair


It’s the time of the season for shopping.

Delta College Fashion Club held its semi-annual Art & Gift Fair on campus this week.

The Art & Gift Fair has been around more than 15 years.

“The vendors pay low rates to sell at the event with discounts given to those who choose to sell for both days,” said club member Daniel Gonzalez, 20.

The fair ran Oct. 5-6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Funds generated from this event go to the New York trip,” said club vice president Marissa Tapia, 23.

The club’s trip to New York is a hands-on look into the industry, with visits to various areas of fashion.

With more than 30 vendors ranging from cosmetics to fashion. the club has expanded on the average.

“Each year the number of vendors vary, depending on how well the students market the event. This year we have more than 30 vendors, but we usually average 25,” said club president George Chavez, 37.
