The Textile and Apparel Student Association (TASA) hosted its first social event of the semester last Thursday, October 6, at the Memorial Union. Ice cream sundaes were served as students interested in TASA and fashion watched the documentary film Valentino: The Last Emperor, a look into the life of “the last true couturier” and the celebration of Valentino’s 45th year as a designer and owner of his company.
The event was a chance for students with a love for fashion to gather together and enjoy ice cream while learning more about the industry. It was an excellent way to kick off the fall semester of TASA.
TASA’s semester events include runway shows, design contests and various community service activities. TASA alsoputs together the school’s annual runway show in the spring.
