Black magic

LaGrange freshman, Jazmin Chambers, 19, gets her make up done for the Black Magic Fashion Show on Friday in Downing Student Union. Students modeled pieces of work that four designers had been working on. 

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History and a WKU fashion student presented the Black Magic Fashion Show last Friday at Downing Student Union. Louisville sophomore Tiye Gardner, received a grant to put on the show as a service project for Black Lives Matter. The purpose was to bring awareness to the group while celebrating black artists and giving back to the community. The show featured work from four designers, three of which were students, as well as rap, spoken word and dance performances. Gardner and ASAALH also collected canned goods that will be donated to refugees. “It’s just all about learning and growing,” Gardner said. “And each show I do something different to make sure it succeeds.”
