UCLA's student-run fashion program, FAST, announces its 2010 benefit
UCLA doesn't have a formal fashion program, but a handful of its students are as fired up about trends as any FIDM alumni.
The school's Fashion and Trends (FAST) organization counts students from departments all over campus as members, and hosts an annual benefit fashion show.
This year's student-produced event, called "Catalyst," benefits Food on Foot, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing L.A.'s homeless with meals, clothing and assistance to transition off the streets and into homes.
The May 26 event, which starts at 7 p.m. in the Ackerman Grand Ballroom (9308 Westwood Plaza,
Los Angeles), is open to the public and will feature 55 student models, 12 student designers and two UCLA dance teams.
Guests are asked to bring at least one item of clothing to be donated to Food on Foot at the door.
