P.Okoli Spring Festival needs models (source is up)

The International Student Center and the Cerritos College Public Relations Office are looking for international students and students who have clothing from other cultures to take part in this year’s Spring Festival’s main event, the Cultural Fashion Show on March 12.

The Spring Festival began in collaboration with the Chinese School of Cerritos, a local Chinese organization and Cerritos College, in celebration of Chinese New Year.

In recent years, the theme was changed to the cultures who celebrate the lunar new year, and this year it expanded to all cultures.

This year will be the first year that students will be able to, and are encouraged to take part in the actual event.

“Up until last year, the Chinese school was the group who organized the fashion show, but this year there was a situation where their costumes are being used in another event; so this will be the opportunity where we are looking for models, and those who can lend us some costumes for use. So we might as well bring in all cultures (to participate),” Aya Abelon, coordinator of media affairs, said.

The ISC also has been trying to encourage students to get involved in the fashion show; even by having it promoted at a recent club meeting.

“We are trying to help with the cultural fashion show. By doing this, we will get some international student involved. We have many students from many different cultures across the world and (the club) wants them to be comfortable about where they are from, and to share there culture with those at this school,” Joseph Silva, president of the International Students Association, said.

Though the Festival is still in need of models, ISA vise president Jihyun Park feel that it will still be a successful event.

“I heard that in previous years, the Spring Festival was successful, and with the Chinese School (of Cerritos) wanting Cerritos College to be involved in the fashion show should be a good idea” Park said.
