Rock the Runway

By Nicole Landfield

The second annual “Rock the Runway” student fashion show
strutted through the Bronco Student Center last Thursday.

“I like the event because it gets to showcase student work” said
Tina Bui, a fifth-year animal science student and Rock the Runway
model. “It is great that students get to have that experience with
their major and contribute to a good cause.”

More than 500 students and off-campus supporters went to support
the event that showcased student talent from designers, models and
musicians.

“My friend brought me here because one of her friends is a model
in the show,” said Paul Richardson, a third year civil engineering
student. “The crowd is fun, the music is good, and I would
definitely come back next year.”

The show brought in over $1000 to support the Make a Wish
Foundation.

“We had a lot of success by [those] who were involved,” said
Jennifer Chow, vice president of external affairs of the Bronco
Athletic Association. “Our supporters made this happen.

The Athletic Association, ASI Beat, Chi Omega, Tau Kappa
Epsilon, Fashion Society and others all were very involved. Even
Captain Moonlight donated $100.”

Musical guests included Wicker, a Los Angeles based electro
group that has performed with LMFAO, Matt Bennett and DJ

The return of Rock the Runway to campus brought in many
designers and student supporters, including former Cal Poly
students.

One of the non-student designers in the show was Anchor Blue, a
company excited to be a part of a student production.

“I found and booked a lot of the designers, mostly Cal Poly
Alumna,” said Dao Chung, a fifth-year apparel merchandising and
management, French, and business student and the mind behind the
“Asian Apparel” collection in the show. “We pulled some strings at
Anchor Blue, and they let us use some of their clothes for the
night.”

The models elevated the atmosphere with the crowd cheering
loudly for each model making their way down the runway.

“I got involved by just auditioning,” said Jay Cosico, a third
year hospitality-student and model. “I feel like the event was a
little hidden gem last year and we made it two or three times as
big this year. Clothing designing and modeling is not as easy as it
looks!”

The show consisted of seven designers, most of which were Cal
Poly students, alumni and included: Loud & Obnoxious, Brick
House, Gabriela Urizar, Paul James, Dao Chung, Contour Hooligans
and Anchor Blue.
