The fifth annual Spring Festival marked the first year Cerritos College students were able to take part in the performances.

The main event of the day, which took place on Saturday, was the international fashion show.

International clothing was modeled by community members, including Ju Gentry and his family, who were sporting traditional clothing from the Thai culture.

Restaurant and hotel hospitality major Pritika Hirani was wearing traditional Indian clothing.

“What I wore was what we wear to weddings and other gatherings,” Hirani said.

The fashion show was a good experience for international student Jihyun Park.

“The fashion show was great. I got to see clothing from different countries and cultures. It was very awesome,” Park said.

She also took part in the fashion show in a last-minute change of models, modeling colorful clothing from Mongolia.

Even those who have participated in fashion shows in the past enjoyed being part of this year’s event.

“This is my second year in a row as part of the fashion show,” art and international business major Aljen Madello said.

“[Being part of the show] makes me feel like I’m back at home in some sorts. I was wearing the national outfit, Barron Tagalog, for the Filipino men out there.”

Cerritos College students also took part in two other performances including a melody of pop songs.

Economics major Ben Basuni and alumnus Khanh Khuong performed three songs, including “Cater to You” by Destiny’s Child and “Love Song” by Ne-Yo.

“It was a bit awkward; Khanh and I practiced a lot, but it wasn’t the right type of audience. But we wanted to just have fun, and get more people involved,” Basuni said.

The Dance Department did a small dance recital showing its talents to the community.
