Student organization NOiR Runway will be hosting its 19th annual fashion show, entitled “Exogenesis,” on Saturday, Apr. 14 at the Biomedical Science Research Building.
“My executive board, models and I have worked tirelessly to bring the student body a show they won't forget,” wrote Taylor A. Williams, NOiR’s president and Ross junior. “With the help of our models, assistants, sponsors, and audience members we hope to execute a worthwhile show that's entertaining, eventful and memorable.”
According to Williams, Exogenesis will feature clothing from well-known designers and upcoming creatives alike. The looks, coupled with production design, will offer audience members an extra-terrestrial experience.
“Our theme ‘Exogenesis’ surrounds the unknown,” wrote Williams. “The place where creativity and flyness come together and go hand in hand beautifully. Deriving from the Greek term exo- meaning 'outside' and genesis-meaning 'origin,' these words come together to hypothesize that life might have originated elsewhere in the universe and then spread to Earth. With a ticket to our charity runway show and our models as our muses, we are set to launch the audience towards fashion elsewhere in the universe.”
The runway show begins at 7:00 p.m., while doors open to VIPs at 6:00 p.m. and to the general public at 6:30 p.m.. Tickets range from $17 (General Admission) to $35 (VIP) and may be purchased here. Proceeds from Exogenesis will support Wish Upon A Teen, a metro Detroit-based nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities to teenagers with life-limiting medical conditions.
