Show Begins at 7:30 PM

The University of Mount Union’s Black Student Union (BSU) will debut their annual fashion show on Saturday, February 10 in the Giese Center for the Performing Arts.

The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Brush Performance Hall, but it’s advised that you arrive at 7 p.m. to purchase tickets and get seats. You can buy tickets for $5 presale and $7 at the door. The show is scheduled to conclude at 10 p.m.

The models will dance, flaunt different outfits, and perform short skits to funky, upbeat music throughout the various scenes within the show. The show will not only highlight the theme “Our Black is Beautiful”, but also explore current issues in the black community. The variety of different songs and compelling scenes are sure to make for an entertaining, refreshing performance you won’t forget.

The show takes place on a very timely date, as February is Black History Month.

“This event is about showing our pride,” said Ande’ Green, sophomore nursing major and BSU social chair.

“It was a lot of fun planning the fashion show,” she continued, “So many pieces go into creating the show. There’s the fashion show committee, the BSU board meetings, the practices with the models. It was crazy! But I’m so grateful for all of the help and support I got. In the end, the show really came together, and I’m so excited for everyone to see it!”

When I asked Ande’ what people could expect from the show, she happily proclaimed:

“A lot of dancing, a lot of happiness, a lot of expression. A lot of people being themselves.”

So, mark your calendars for Saturday, February 10, and attend BSU’s fashion show --- This is an event you don’t want to miss!
