On October 17th, in collaboration with the Straight Edge, the Cornell Fashion Collective (CFC) hosted the 2018 Flash Fashion Show! The recently established Straight Edge has been an active voice in supporting student endeavors on campus. Through its collaboration with CFC, the two have been able to provide students with a platform for self expression. This year’s Flash Fashion Show route maximized engagement with the student population, designers, and models on central campus.
Beginning at noon on Willard Straight Hall, the location of the recently opened Straight Edge, the walk had models go through Ho Plaza and the Arts Quad. Stopping in the center of the Arts Quad, models took a brief moment to showcase their looks and went back to the Straight Edge to conclude the show. The diverse models participating in the Flash Fashion Show were representative of students across the seven undergraduate colleges. The Flash Fashion Show enables student designers to showcase their looks and to present their unique approaches to apparel. This year’s show served as a continuation of CFC’s commitment to empowering young creatives to push the boundaries of fashion.
