The Hub on Canal announced on November 5 that they will continue their partnership to support the New Smyrna Beach After School Fashion Club for middle and high school students by sponsoring the Razzle Dazzle Fashion Show to be held in the spring.
The event, which will take place on May 19, 2019 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Brannon Center (105 S. Riverside Drive), will feature haute couture designs created by middle and high school students from New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater.
Tickets for the event will go on sale in April for $35. The Razzle Dazzle fashion event will showcase the efforts of nearly a dozen students. Each student will create two haute couture fashion designs to be modeled in the show.
The New Smyrna Beach After School Fashion Club was developed as a partnership between the City of New Smyrna Beach and The Hub on Canal. Led by New Smyrna Beach Middle School art teacher, Samantha Hughes, club members are learning about the basics of fashion design, sewing, career opportunities in the fashion industry, fashion design marketing, branding, modeling, and hair and make up.
Industry professionals and local businesses are supporting the program, offering their knowledge and expertise to the students. Proceeds from the event will be used to support the after school fashion club.
