Western Kentucky University's Black Student Alliance is presenting its annual Black fashion show inspired by the BET fashion show of the same name. The fashion show is a creative production that showcases Black male and female models selected directly from the WKU student population modeling the latest in fashions to contemporary music. In previous fashion shows, students have also constructed garments to be worn by the models. BSA sets the bar for community involvement among Black students with its monthly forums that open discussions about critical topics to Black students on campus, its annual "Night at the Apollo" that showcases individual Black student talent, and involvement in social causes on campus centered around minorities. Rip Da Runway is the BSA's most awaited event and weeks of finessing and practice are taken by the directors, the models, the set constructors, and also the publicity committee. Fashion Inc. is proud to support the Black Student Alliance in its mission to provide Black students with an affair that promotes expression and enables students to show off their individual talents. Rip Da Runway is Thursday, April 15 in the Garrett Ballroom.
