FASHION SHOW AT BJCC WILL HELP BIRMINGHAM STUDENTS WITH CREATIVE CAREERS
Special for the Birmingham Times
Birmingham designer La’Vinnia Holliday will present a fashion show, art event and more on Friday, Sept. 15 in the East Meeting Hall of the BJCC to raise money for programs to expose Birmingham students to careers in the creative field.
Doors open at 6 p.m. The event will start at 7 p.m. Celebrity guest Dawn Richard, of MTV’s “Making the Band 3’’ fame, and singing groups Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money, will attend and perform. Holliday is joining Birmingham Stands to raise money to fund materials and equipment for programs for high school students interested in fashion, art and music. She hopes her program, which she plans to discuss soon with Birmingham school system leaders, will give students additional career options and help improve grades and behavior.
“I know it seems really out there and huge, but if we can come together we can really make a real difference,’’ she said of her vision. “God revealed this to me and showed me my purpose.’’
Various designers and stylists will present fashions in a runway show. There will also be appearances by a contortionist, dancers, two artists in a pop-up art gallery, a body painter and vendors. General admission is $25. VIP tickets are $35. VIP tickets and a meet and greet with Richard are $55. Tickets at the door will be $30.
