The two-day event includes three shows, Friday and Saturday evening at 8 p.m. and a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. General admission tickets are being sold in advance and are $12 for an evening show and $5 for the Saturday afternoon show. VIP tickets are $25, and include reserved front row seating, cash bar, complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a gift bag, and should be purchased in advance.

To purchase tickets, visit modawmu.tix.com or call (269) 254-0836.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Southwest Michigan affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

The fashion show is sponsored annually by the Merchandising Opportunities Design Association, a registered student organization at WMU. Created and produced solely by students, the event is regarded as a spring phenomenon. Every aspect of production will be shown through student talent--from lighting and set design, to marketing and promotion, runway modeling, graphic design, and exquisitely crafted pieces from designers.
