Students got the chance to show off fashions from a student designer and Columbia shops in USC's Third Annual Fashion Show Thursday. USC's Fashion Board puts on the show, and this year it featured student designer Laura McCall.
"I shared eight looks and it was exciting," McCall said. "I tried to make sure everything went along with the Spring theme."
McCall is a sophomore Fashion Merchandising major and already has a few of her designs for sale in stores around the Midlands. The shorts she wore during the Fashion Show were made from her grandmother's curtains.
"I get my inspiration from the prints of the fabric and then I go from there," McCall said.
The Fashion Show also showed collections and looks put together by Columbia boutiques. The show was an opportunity for the stores to attract new customers.
The show also offered opportunities for a few hardworking fashion students.
"We awarded three $500 scholarships for fashion students to study abroad or take some extra sewing classes or whatever," Fashion Board president Marquis Bias said.
The show was a part of Columbia's Fashion Week, and Bias was happy about the packed venue.
"I was pleased with the turn out, everything was the best that its ever been," Bias said.
