Explore and come Face to Face with “Walking Contradictions” in Tonight’s Fashion Show

May 20, 2011

Seattle Pacific University is hosting a fashion show tonight. The show, called Walking Contradictions, starts at 6pm. Presented by the SPU Fashion Group, the fashion show will take on contradictions found all around us such as dark vs light, old vs new, rich vs poor, and soft vs hard. While each designer interprets these designs through their own personal styles and means an overall theme focusing on the contradictions involving body image will course through the room as the models walk down the runway.

Supporting the National Eating Disorder Awareness group (NEDA), Walking Contradictions takes on a touchy and often unspoken subject in the fashion industry: bringing awareness to distorted body image and eating disorders. Their goal is to help inform more people about theses dangerous disorders so prevalent in the fashion world.

Designers for the evening are: Megan Knape, Jackie Arhens, Olivia Lenz, Katie Koncilya, Rebekah Koonce, Charlotte Pratt, Naomi Weima, Morgan Tien, Taryn Systma and Jennifer Lamb. A bio for each designer will be included at the beginning of the show.
