Beauty and the Middle East: MESA's Annual Fashion Show

Thursday, December 6, 2018
6:00pm – 9:00pm

Storrs Campus
SU Ballroom

This event is a fashion show, where students from countries across the Middle East, South Asia and North Africa will be showcasing their traditional clothes down the runway. Also, students will be performing traditional dances, and we will have live music from students playing instruments, such as the Oud and Tabla that are native to the Middle East. Before each country is represented, we are sharing one positive and one negative current event within the country. As members of the diaspora, we are able to enjoy dances and clothing that the people in our home countries are unable to. As this event is open to all UConn students from all cultures, we aim to shed light on what is currently happening in these places. From 6-7 pm, we are hosting a dinner that will be served to the first 50 students that RSVP, but at the moment, we already have 40 sign ups. From 7-9 pm, the show will take place. We ask students to wear traditional or formal clothing.
