Fashion Show 2007
"A FOREIGN AFFAIR"
"It was an evening of fashion, glam, music, dancing and acrobatics at Ruby Skye when the Fashion department presented its annual Fashion Show. "A Foreign Affair" took an enthralled audience on a whirlwind fashion tour to New York, Tokyo, Paris and Las Vegas, featuring the season's latest fashion trends. From pretty pink dresses to structured menswear and sophisticated evening gowns, this show pulled out all the fashion stops. "We hit the beaches in bright, boldly colored swimwear and painted the town in sexy, sophisticated evening wear. It was an exhilarating experience! A show-stopping black, mermaid wedding gown designed by Elly Azarian sent everyone home on cloud nine."

"CCSF gives students real-life, hands on opportunities and the production of "A Foreign Affair." Not only do student fashion designers have the chance to showcase their designs, aspiring student fashion show producers and talent agents have the opportunity to produce a professional show under the guidance of Instructor Natalie Smith. One of the evenings highlights was guest of honor, Colleen Quen, whose fresh take on eveningwear inspired many an upcoming designer."

"Ruby Skye was packed with student designers and their adoring fans as well as local hipsters in search of the latest fashion trends. The evening's designers included Carlos Sandoval, Elly Azarian, Jason Pickens, Joe De Hoyos, Thomas Haryanto, Victoria Jarvis, Brina Talski, Christina Macey, Giselle Castaneda, Jonathan Ochoco, Keiko Koike, Michelle Byrnes, Alexandra Cruz, Cynthia Ywen, James Julian Chang, Erica Pedersen, Mei-Ling Maffei and Suzanne Staehr. The show's four fashion segments were introduced by performance artists whose culturally iconic pieces reflected the designs that were to follow. Madonna's "I Love NY" put the audience in a NY state of mind, while energetic break dancers transported them to the streets of Tokyo where models strutted on the catwalk in skinny pants and bias cut jackets. Impressions of Paris were that of Edgar Degas's ballerinas with an abundance of tulle enveloping the models. The runway rocked in shimmery golds and glistening silvers, reflecting the glitter and glam of Vegas showgirls."
