Fashion Week at EMU

Come check out the excitement during Eastern Michigan University’s 2012 fashion week while helping to raise money for a good cause!

Fashion Week at EMU is run by EMU students that aspire to pursue a future career in Apparel Textile Merchandise, Marketing, Public and Media Relations, Communications and Fashion Design. These students have made history as the first student organization to fully sponsor, host and produce a fashion week at a division I-A institution.

This year EMU’s fashion week is celebrating its fifth anniversary, operating under the mantra bigger, better and bolder with plans to make this fashion production the best yet in the state of Michigan. Sponsored by iSPY, 2012 Fashion Week at EMU will take place between October 8 and October 11 with the headlining “V” runway fashion show taking place on Thursday, October 11 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. in the Student Center Grand Ballroom.

Half of ticket sale proceeds will support the Lupus Foundation of America, Michigan and Northwest Ohio Chapter ( and will help fund their mission of educating and supporting  those affected by lupus in the Michigan and Northwest Ohio areas and working towards a cure.

Events include the Miss Fashionality Pageant on Monday, October 8, the Designer showcase on  Tuesday, October 9th, the Masquerade Celebration on Wednesday, October 10 and the “V” Runway Show on  Thursday, October 11.

During the Miss Fashionlity Pageant, four women will compete for the coveted Miss Fashionality crown. The Designer Showcase will expose local designers and boutiques to the EMU student and business communities. The Masquerade Celebration is a semi formal masquerade styled social event that doubles as a birthday celebration for Fashionality, the non-profit behind Fashion Week at EMU. Guests are encouraged to wear masks and to even submit their own creations into a mask-making contest for a prize. Finally, the “V” Runway Show will reinvent Fashion Week at EMU’s past four themes and incorporate them into this show with a very special fifth  theme. Local designers, models and other artists will come together to create an unforgettable show.

The week will be a fashion experience like no other, so be sure to check out one or more of these exciting events.
