Sisters On The Runway Fashion Show Returns To The HUB

Penn State’s Sisters On The Runway chapter hosted its annual fashion show Monday night in the HUB. Through it, students and community members used fashion and artistry to help spread awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault.

Monday’s fashion show served as the organization’s first in-person iteration in more than two years. Naturally, the energy was high in Heritage Hall as Penn State’s Sisters On The Runway chapter pulled off an exciting event.

Throughout the night, models, including Onward State’s own Nina Jeffries, took the stage to show off some looks presented by local stores that sponsored the show. Proceeds from the event benefited Centre Safe, a women’s shelter in downtown State College.

The fashion show naturally featured plenty of different styles, ranging from free-flowing dresses to more professional wear. Each model also displayed different makeup stylings to tie things together.

While fashion was on display all night long, student groups stopped by to provide some entertainment throughout the roughly two-hour program. The Singing Lions headlined a star-studded panel of student entertainment, which included dance troupes and musical numbers, too.

While there was plenty of fun to be had at Monday’s fashion show, Sisters On The Runway made sure to ground things in reality and keep attendees focused on domestic and sexual assault. Throughout the event, guest speakers and models presented statistics, facts, and history nuggets to highlight pressing issues relating to domestic and sexual assault.
