This year, Ziana’s annual midnight fashion show revealed many dramatic changes.
A small disruption at the beginning of the show by a couple of audience members did nothing to deter the captivating performance of the Ziana participants.
The host of the midnight fashion show was Melissa Macon, a former board member of the fashion club. Her co-host was Braheim Dixon, a current student.
Macon, who has been hosting for three years said, “Ziana fashion group has been putting on the midnight fashion show since 2000.”
The two hosts’ fashions, which they changed with each scene, were up to date and very stylish. Macon had on neon green tights with a fitted embroidered t-shirt and Dixon had on a pair of dark blue jeans with a Handwritten brand T-shirt, which gave them a casual look.
The hosts’ high class looks were a gold long dress for Macon with a high split along the side and Dixon having a fitted suit.
Ziana had a variety of different scenes. One was the creative scene, showcasing different colored body suits with broken glass and paint.
Another scene consisted of all black attire with a single dramatic white dress at the end of the runway.
Janee Stevens, who helps out with the outfits, helps choreograph for the show, and is also a former board member of the fashion group noticed several difference between this show and others.
Stevens said “We had more props and skits. Also we were more creative with our outfits; we had made most of them.”
The music they played was current and that got the crowd excited. The DJ played music that represented each of the different cities of the audience members.
During the intermission Omega Psi Phi and Alpha Phi Alpha performed. Senior Khaliah Brooks, said, “The energy in the room was amazing, it made me want to get up on the stage and model.”
Despite a minor interruption in the beginning that was quelled by public safety, the Ziana Fashion Club gave a good show for Homecoming 2012.
