Fashion to host art, gift fair in Danner


The Fashion Club at Delta College will be holding its annual Spring Art & Gift Fair from March 6-7 inside of Danner Hall from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days.

The fair will feature rotating vendors with a wide variety of items to look at and purchase, including scrapbooks, lotions, fragrances, candles, soaps and more.

Students at Delta College involved with the Fashion Club will also have items on display.

The fair has been a part of Delta College for the past 17 years.

It brings exclusive designs and creative styles for those who enjoy artistic creations.  The Fashion Club continuously hosts two separate events, one in the spring and another in fall.

“The Spring Art & Gift Fair is to teach students … if you ever wanted to start a business, these are the people to talk to,” said Leslie Asfour, instructor of the Fashion Department, with over 20 years of experience.

“Magic Sense” a soap company in California that specializes in vegetable glycerin soap, that does not dry your skin, will also be on hand at the up coming fair.

Since founding the company in 2005, Betty and Mike Miller have made a mark in Hollywood by presenting generous gifts to countless celebrities.

Students that take part in events presented by the Fashion Club walk away with a feeling of gratitude.

“I get the experience in organizing an event that brings different vendors, with different products at different prices,” said Daniel Gonzalez, a member of the Fashion Club. “The vendors are happy to see us and I’m always happy to see them back…you build relationships with people that you may not have otherwise, and network with people.”

The opportunity for future potential business owners, to experience what it is like, dealing with multiple customers at once is priceless.

At the Spring Art & Gift Fair, students from the Fashion Club show off their socializing and customer appreciation.

“Students that want their own brand, have to learn how to recruit vendors,” said Asfour.
