Kent State’s Modista Fashion Group will host its annual fashion show “Modista High: School Dayz” this Saturday from 7-9 p.m. in the Kent State Student Center Ballroom.

Modista has produced an annual fashion show since 2008. This year’s attendance is expected to reach 300. Invitations to the event are open to the public but are heavily promoted to Fashion School students, faculty and Modista Fashion Group members. 

The show will feature student designers and stylists, as well as local vendors Tre Sorelle Boutique from Cleveland and Kent-based One Love Yoga and Boutique.

Elandra McConney, president of the fashion group and merchandising coordinator, said she hopes this will be the best show yet and helps introduce Modista’s new brand.

“Modista dropped ‘minority’ out of its name last year, so this show is a fresh start for the group,” said McConney, a senior fashion merchandising major.
