The University of Memphis African Student Association will be making the world their runways. The student organization is using cultural fashions to unite students of different backgrounds and heritage.
Senior film student Lawrence Shaw and Justin Brookes, a sophomore health and human performance major, are co-directors of the first Multicultural Fashion Show on campus.
“We are trying to show the diversity of the world," Shaw said. "The best way to learn about a different culture is through their food or through their clothing."
The show is set to occur in April during the University’s Multicultural Week, an annual
celebration done by the University to honor the diversity of the students.
“The vision is just to show everybody that although we are all from a different culture, we all
of one body, we are all the same. We can celebrate each other’s diversity,” said Shaw, the creative half of the duo.
