The runway is ready.

The runway is ready.

7 p.m.

We’re less than two hours away from the dimming of the lights and, even though the chairs are empty, this place is already electric. I’m a newbie to the CCAD Fashion Show scene, and I’m astounded by the number of individuals and organizations it took to put this event together.

Those individuals and organizations are, of course, our generous sponsors.

Though the students’ 68 designs are undoubtedly the centerpieces of the night, the fabulous runway, dramatic lighting, and beautiful hair and makeup (among countless other things) provided by the generous folks listed below help make this night one to remember.

They’ve given their time, talents, and resources, and for that we are truly grateful.

Thank you Lbrands.

    This truly seems like a lovely festive event!

    We was wondering whether it was possible to make a contribution to the CCAD fashion shows, and where you would do so?

    Kind regards
