Fantasy fashion to grace McKinney for annual festival

Nicole Bullard

The Saddleback College Annual Fashion Show will be showing off its student designs including corsets and evening wear.

The theme is fantasy and fairytale meets nightmare, with inspiration from movies such as A Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice In Wonderland and Snow White and the Huntsman.

Produced by Fashion 147, the show will also have Athena College of Beauty for hair and makeup styling, hors d’oeuvres prepared by the culinary arts department and the whole show will be taped by communication arts students.

Student design categories include corsets, evening-wear, ready-to-wear and fantasy. The Best in Show Award will be $500.

Along with Saddleback students, there will be several boutiques attending, including Buffalo Exchange, Muse, The Lobby, Luna B. and Shangri-La.

The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:00 p.m. in the McKinney Theater on Saturday, May 5.

Presale tickets cost $15 and at the door is $20. Tickets are available through the McKinney box office. For further information, contact Diane McGroarty at
