As an entirely student produced show, students in the School of Fashion have organized every aspect from marketing, fundraising, budgeting, and casting models. The performance showcases new up and coming talent and student work in the fashion industry. The show will also showcase 10 high school student designs submitted and selected from local suburban high schools.

Tickets will be pre-sold at $65 for VIP, $20 for general admission, and $10 for students on campus. At the door, ticket rates of $65 VIP, $25 for general admission, and $15 for students with valid IDs. Tickets are sold on campus and online via eventbrite.com:  (www.eventbrite.com). The students have also launched a gofundme campaign for donations in lieu of attendance at the show. All the proceeds from the show will be donated to 360 Youth Services, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to substance abuse education and prevention services for the ages of 8-24. This organization offers transitional housing programs, LGBTQ collaborative, and prevention programs.

About 360 Youth Services- 360 Youth Services began in 1971 when a group of concerned parents, community, and religious leaders recognized the need for professional, youth-centered services in the Naperville community. They formed a council that eventually became a non-profit organization referred to as Naperville Community Outreach. In 2011, the organization changed its name to 360 Youth Services to better reflect its mission and vision.
