Students to 'dress for success' in campus fashion show

A group of campus departments are sponsoring an event that will feature a fashion show of business attire, styling tips and more.

The fourth annual “Dress For Success Fashion Show” will take place Thursday, April 4, from 4-6 p.m. in the Grand River Room of the Kirkhof Center. Students will model business outfits, and community vendors offering professional services, such as dry cleaning and hair styling, will be available.

Students in the Hospitality and Tourism Management class, “Intro to Event and Meeting Planning,” organized the event to give students a chance to see ways to dress for a variety of jobs.

A clothing drive, with business attire donated from a local dry cleaning business, will take place at the event. Faculty and staff can also donate clothing to the drive.

The event is free and open to the campus community. It is sponsored by Career Services, Women’s Center, Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Seidman College of Business’ Professional Development Series.
