The Fashion/ Floral Gala will be held Saturday, March 25, 2017, in the Hart Auditorium, to give students the chance to put on a real gala and fashion show.
Genet Orme, a faculty member in the Home & Family Department, and one of the faculty mentors for the gala, said this semester's theme, "Elevate," was chosen to show brides that they can be elegant and modest as well as modern.
The gala will be held from 1:00 p.m., to 4:00 p.m., with the fashion show beginning promptly at 1:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $5 to offset the cost of the flowers, which the horticulture students ordered in San Francisco last week, and Orme said the event coordination teams have been budgeting for roughly 600 - 800 guests at the gala.
