On October 26, 2014, the Fashion Executives presented “Metamorphosis”, their second annual fashion show in USF’s Marshall Center Ballroom. The Fashion Executives is a student organization that strives to educate, empower, and encourage one another to learn more and pursue possible careers in the fashion industry through professional development and opportunities. In line with their mission, the hosts, a Sophomore and Senior, were International Business and Mass Communication majors. A plethora of designers were showcased to include Lydia Anne Clothing, All Brides 2 Be & Formal wear, Dress Over Heels, Sky Unikue’s Elegant Clothing Boutique, Psychotic Legend, and Dollface. The clothing designs ranged from athletic and sporty to elegant and professional.
Lydia Anne Clothing, a designer of couture professional clothing aims to “give women an incentive to admire themselves” with their high-waisted pants, exotic prints, lace, and satin. All Brides 2 Be and Formalwear presented various colors and styles of wedding and elegant attire. Their motto, “We treat everyone as an individual”, was definitely showcased in the non-traditional bridal gowns that were displayed. Dress Over Heels, a Tampa based online boutique, intrigued the eye with dresses made up of vibrant colors, ruffles, and leather. Sky Unikue, a clothing boutique that caters to all fashionistas who crave the look of elegance 7 days a week, wowed the audience with a unique line of sweaters, coats, scarves, and shawls. Psychotic Legend, launched in 2013, believes that “fashion is your state of mind”. They presented exclusive men’s and women athletic wear consisting of body fitting dresses, tie-die shirts, leather pants, jerseys, and hoodies. Dollface, a vintage clothing brand, closed the show with exquisite pieces comprised of lace embroidery and leather.
This elegant show was concluded with an introduction of the organization’s Executive board. After thanking the audience for their support, they stated, “We put a lot of heart into planning this show. You are all rock stars!” In my opinion, the Fashion Executives are the true rock stars and I look forward to their next event.
