“Planet Chic,” was more than just a fashion meet-up – it was a way to showcase student talent

Models and designers alike treated Arizona State University’s downtown campus to a runway fashion show last week. The event, called “Planet Chic,” was more than just a fashion meet-up – it was a way to showcase student talents in the community.

The Chic Daily is a fashion journalism club that publishes digital articles, magazines and photos about fashion, beauty, and culture.  The club, however, does not stop there – they organize and host a yearly fashion show. This year’s was entitled “Planet Chic,” held at the A.E. England Building in downtown Phoenix. 

Local nonprofit “A Human Mission,” received the proceeds from the over 200 ticket sales. 

The event radiated “Planet Chic” in every outfit, detail, and runway walk.  The bathroom within the building was even covered with graphic space-themed images. At the start of the runway with a brown couch and plants on each end, creating a look that balanced out the reflective runway. 

All hands were on deck for the show, with dozens of models, stylists, and designers, many of them students from ASU’s own Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. 

The show opened with a model completely covered in alien-like blue makeup greeting the guests with abstract movements. The show then proceeded with twelve collections, each shown by models who brought different characters to life. 

Each collection ended with the models posing on the couch as if they were posing in a magazine to add that extra spunk to the show. The designers played with various patterns, proportions, fabrics, and lots of vibrant colors. Each of the models had unique and colorful makeup to complete their looks. 

One of the show’s most memorable looks was a model covered from head to toe in silver paint with a matching silver bathing suit and headphones, and pink stilettos.

The show ended with speeches by the club’s president, Olivia Madrid, and vice president Alexia Hill. The two shared their appreciation for the show's turnout and explained how surreal it was to see their hard work paying off.
