This is "Fashion Week" at the University of South Carolina's. The school's Fashion Board sponsors this chance for up and coming fashion designers to showcase their talents.

Marketing and management student Emily Smith welcomes the opportunity to show off her creations.

"Besides school, it is something that I can do whenever I want late at night or during the day.  It developed into something that I realized I loved," Dixon says.

Fashion Board member Laura Dixon says it is important for students to know how fun fashion can be.

"Everyone loves fashion!  Who doesn't love fashion and it's good to bring the fashion industry to Columbia," she says. 

Fashion Board director Sallie Boggs says Fashion Board aims to promote more than just shopping and clothing.
 
"We also are involved in breast cancer awareness month.  We have a Lee denim drive. And have fashion week in the spring. So there are a lot of activities to get involved in," she says.
 
Fashion Board will hold a fashion show entitled "Eastside Elegance" Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.  The event will be held at 701 Whaley Street.
