“Global Glam: An Evening of Fashion, Diversity and Community” is set for 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. March 26 at the Wick Alumni Center and tickets are now available.
Global Glam will feature international and domestic students modeling traditional clothing from various world regions, designs created by students from the Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design Department and selected garments and accessories from participating independent retailers in the Lincoln community.
The event will also feature a Maker’s Market of garments and accessories created by local immigrant and refugee women affiliated with ECHO Collective, a stylish selfie station to commemorate the evening, global drinks and the intricate musical stylings of the Glenn Korff School of Music jazz trio. Appetizers will be provided by Venue Restaurant & Lounge. And buy an extra raffle ticket (or two) for a chance to win one of the unique items offered by participating local retailers. During the show, emcee and UNL student Jamieson Battistella will be the guide, as Lincoln DJ Erin Poor accompanies the student model-volunteers walking the runway.
