Dresses will flow and talents will unite this Saturday night as the D.I.M.E.S. fashion organization presents its spring fashion show, “The Great Escape.”

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Russell Union Ballroom, one of the leading fashion organizations on the Georgia Southern University campus will display what they have been preparing for all year.

Raven Taylor, junior, business management major and vice president of D.I.M.E.S. said, “This year’s show is called ‘The Great Escape’ and it focuses on different cultures around the world with a fugitive twist on each scene and the fashion.”

Each year the D.I.M.E.S. organization chooses a theme after staff deliberation to create an eye-catching experience for everyone in attendance.

“First we pick a theme for the show the year before and spend fall and spring semester visualizing and deciding on scene layout, props, promotions, and overall aesthetics,” Taylor said.

By grabbing the attention of the past audiences, the D.I.M.E.S. organization yearly spring fashion has inspired students to join this group and help with future creations.

Konnleius Martin, sophomore management major and public relations director for D.I.M.E.S. said, “Their shows always entertain the audience by sticking closely to a theme. Last year’s ‘Fashion In Film’ fashion show influenced me to not only become a part of D.I.M.E.S., but to also play an active role in their next production.”

This annual spring fashion show puts a lot of emphasis on their designs and collections that are worn by models specifically chosen for each outfit.

“People should expect surprising pieces in this well-thought-out theme of cultural disparity. The articles of clothing that come down the runway always seem to amaze the audience almost more than the models that are wearing them,” Martin said.

Tickets for the show are $5 if acquired in advance this week at D.I.M.E.S. tables set up around the rotunda, inside the union or from a member and $7 at the door.

Martin said, “people should really come out not only to be entertained by such a great production, but they should feel inspired once they leave that Ballroom Saturday night.”
