Campus fashion show benefits African drought relief
Thursday, 25 OU students strutted their stuff down the runway of Molly Shi Ballroom—however, the clothes they were wearing wasn’t the main attraction.
Hosted by OU’s chapter of Circle K International, “A Night to Unite” fashion show raised awareness and benefited UNICLEF and the Horn of Africa Relief Fund, dedicated to helping children and families who are suffering from drought in Africa.
“We ultimately hope that the fashion show will make UNICLEF become more known and be our event for years to come,” junior Circle K International member Danielle Landrum said.
The night started off with a fashion show, models from seven different sororities on campus were represented on stage. Sears, Dillard’s and JC Pennies donated the clothing modeled.
After the main event was a raffle.
Danielle Landrum and Alexis Taitel, Circle K International members who planned the event, explained the method behind their fashion madness.
“Since [a fashion show] is such a unique event I think that a lot of people will come because there aren’t very many other events like it,” Taitel said, “We tried to cater to the greek community by seeking out models and then we also sought out other student organizations to attend.”
