It’s that time of year again! The annual FAST fashion show is today! UCLA students, family, friends, and prominent sponsors will fill Pauley Pavilion to watch an entire student designed and organized fashion show.
Like last year, our show will be sponsored by brands you probably use daily, such as Articles of Society, Morphe Cosmetics, Daniel Wellington, NYX, and SHEIN. To hype you all up for this year’s show here’s a look back at last year’s fun!
Last year our designers demonstrated their wide range of talent and style from trendy streetwear and chic formal gowns to eccentric and artful pieces. Some of the most notable designs were the modern and cubist pieces that opened the show, such as this cape-like dress with mesmerizing angles.
This was followed by a male model rocking a fluorescent cape, gloves, and toilet plunger. Behind him, a female model rocked a monochromatic white outfit holding a white lantern filled with glow sticks to juxtapose the pieces, showing us the importance of props.
Another head-turning outfit was the clear skirt held by crossbody chains, which was simple yet daring at the same time.
The show then transformed into a parade of princess pink gowns filled with shining materials and pounds of tulle that created floor length dresses.
As a form of mid-show entertainment, a dance group showed off both their style and skills on the stage dressed in black and flannel streetwear to liven up the crowd.
Directly after followed an outfit that belonged in Vogue with an intricate and elaborate headpiece that could have attended this year’s met ball, completely camp!
This year our FAST designs will be even fiercer and bolder with their pieces, making for a captivating show.
A huge part of FAST behind the scenes is our committee members! Everyone in the club gives a large amount of their time and effort backstage to run a flawless show that we should all be proud of. Here are a few backstage pictures from last years show.
