This past Monday on Nov. 19, the Multicultural Advisory Committee held its Fashion Show centered on culture around the world. The Latino Institute and other organizations on campus helped to co-sponsor the event.
The models were comprised of students wearing clothes from their respective cultures. Different categories included traditional, celebratory, daily, or semi-formal wear. The Latino Institute's own student worker and scholar Gabriela Fernandez was a model during the Fashion Show. She was wearing a traditional dress from Puerto Rico while holding the Puerto Rican flag.
"Being able to dress as a Bomba and Plena dancer and teach something about my culture to others was really satisfying," Fernandez said.
Kayla Rivers, a member of MAC and planner for the Fashion Show, spoke of the importance of the event, "The Fashion Show is dedicated towards celebrating the various cultural backgrounds of the Seton Hall community through a fun and educational display. The intention is to highlight the uniqueness, yet commonalities between the array of cultures present on campus through a unifying event that can help bridge the gap that exists between students and faculty."
The Institute would like to thank MAC for the event and congratulate Gabriela Fernandez for participating in the show.
