Multicultural Fashion Show brings African designs to Goodrich

In what is fast becoming a Williams tradition, the Multicultural Fashion Show made its second annual appearance on campus. The event, inaugurated last year by the BSU, is blossoming into an anticipated event.

The format of the show was similar to that of last year’s: the runway activity was augmented by musical performance and poetry reading. However, the show did add a new element by moving from Currier Club to Goodrich and taking place as an evening event, not an afternoon diversion.

Once again, the designs on display came from Boutique D’Africain, an African clothing store located in Rochester, New York. The boutique has, through catalog exposure, risen to nationally prominence. Owner and chief designer Mrs. P. Reffel Conteh is the mother of TJ Conteh ’00.

The show, which took place on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., featured vibrant designs worn by a mix of professional models and Williams students.
