SECC, with member producer Los Rios Community Colleges, created a documentary on the 2015 ARC Fashion Program — a unique semester-long learning exercise that culminated with the students’ Fashion Show, Aura, on May 1. The finished video, Fashion Matters: The Fashion Show as Teaching Laboratory, tells the story of this unique learning exercise. The annual fashion show is produced by the Fashion 393 Promotion Class where the students are divided into four committees: show direction, marketing, modeling and visual design and stage management.
