Delta College’s fashion program showcases talent this evening


A fashion showcase that serves as a capstone course for fashion students to strut their work down the runway is scheduled for 8 p.m. today.
“This year is going to be bigger than ever, because not only do we have about 90 models, but we also have a red dress show, that was in association with the American Heart Disease Association,” said Natalie Minori Sconce, a fashion program graduate.
The Fashion Goes Red Challenge is a student fashion competition that drew on inspiration from survivors and their families. It serves to promote heart disease among young women.
They will also display the work of three alumni.
“It’s always wonderful to see what graduate students are doing now,” said Minori Sconce.
Student Designer Kathy Vang is presenting her second collection titled,  “A Trail of Stars in the Night Sky.”
Vang said it feature teals, blacks and grays.
Using her own patterns she started “with a fairy tale inspiration and then I realized it wasn’t anything very fairy tale, and then I’ve always been into the whole astronomy thing, and I love looking into the night sky. I’m excited.”
In the past the show has sold as many as 1,000 tickets, and expects to be another sell out as they have brought it back to Delta College’s Atherton Auditorium.
