Who says the runway is just for scantily clad, underfed fem fatals? During Mass Comm week at Texas State, the catwalk will be taken back. Sponsored by PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) and Mass Comm week, the dressed for success fashion show is slated to take over the LBJ student center Wednesday night.
This show will feature a bevy of looks designed to impress potential employers at a job interview. Instead of flared out dresses and pencil thin stilettos, expect fashion forward cardigans, tasteful skirts and pressed oxfords to take center stage.
Faced with the unique challenge of verbally highlighting the model’s strut is appointed master of Ceremonies senior communication studies major, Jonathan Valdez.
“The biggest challenge is not knowing what to expect,” Valdez said. “We haven’t even done a rehearsal.” If his incorrigible antics as executive producer and co-host of KTSW’s morning show, Orange Juice and Biscuits, are any indication, he should have no trouble keeping the models and audience on their feet.
If you have ever felt lost in front of the mirror before a big interview, this is an event not to be missed. Not only will these fashion tips and tricks give you a pattern for success, it will also help build confidence before you go under the spotlight in front of a potential employer.
The lights go up and the “red carpet” unrolls at 7 p.m.
