The Fashion Association at LSU will present Decadence, a student runway show, on Wednesday, May 11, in the Royal Cotillion Ballroom in the LSU Student Union.

The show, which will feature more than 100 student garments and a styling competition, starts at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30.

Tickets can be purchased at in advance for $15 or for $20 at the door. Standing room is $10, and the student price with an LSU student ID is $5.

Grace Chetta, a senior in the program and fashion show chair, said seniors and graduate students in the LSU College of Agriculture Department of Textiles, Apparel Design and Merchandising will have individual collections of four to six garments in the show.

Juniors are invited to show pieces as well.

“We have a lot of variety in the collections this year, including menswear, swimwear and loungewear,” Chetta said.

All members of the Fashion Association at LSU can participate in the styling competition, which is sponsored by Time Warp Boutique. Students can pick out clothes from Time Warp Boutique, and their looks will walk the runway, Chetta said. They will be judged on their ability to style the items.

Students also will show their Marsh on the Catwalk pieces. A grant from the Louisiana Alligator Advisory Council allows students to work with alligator skins to create garments and accessories.
