LAS VEGAS, Dec. 2, 2018 — The Art Institute of Las Vegas is proud to present its first graduating fashion designers showcase. The fashion show will take place Thursday, December 13 at 6:30 pm at Tivoli Village. The event is open to the public and offered at no cost. Hors d’oeuvres and giveaways will be available for the first 100 attendees.

As the final step in their program of study before graduation, two designers will show their work to friends, family and the public in this unique runway show. Both collections promise to offer sophistication and elegance embodied in alluring eveningwear silhouettes.

The aim of Azalea Ventura’s collection, A La Mode D’ Azalea, is to provide classy, sophisticated and elegant, but simple designs inspired by the 1960’s era.

Meliza Bautista’s collection, House of Elegancia, which represents a strong admiration of color and culture, aims to blend effortless styles, and ethical values of USA constructed designs, which are the heart of her brand. Her collection is meant to empower women while remaining trendy and chic.

“These students have worked hard curating unique collections that convey their design aesthetic and displays their expertise and knowledge of apparel construction and development,” said Karina Feliz-Oropeza, fashion design faculty member at the school.

Tivoli Village is located at 400 S. Rampart Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89145. For sponsorship opportunities of this event, please contact Karina Feliz-Oproeza at
