The School of Business held its second annual Dress for Success: Fashion Show Oct. 15 in Wickham Great Hall. Serving as panelists were Stacy Cox, senior vice president and COO of Croghan Colonial Bank and Berg Business Board chair; Kim Radison, business consultant and executive coach with KKR Consult; Kevin Slates, director of Operations and human resources at P.T. Services Rehabilitation Inc.; and Josh Proefrock, area manager of Allen Edmonds.

For the fashion show, students participated in one of four categories: Casual Friday, Business School Events, Business Casual and Business Professional. Each of the categories had four representatives – a male and female dressed appropriately and a male and female dressed inappropriately for the category. They walked the runway for the panelists and were critiqued for their outfits. The outfits were vetted by Kristen Lindsay to ensure that the standards were met for each category.

The Dean’s Student Advisory Board coordinated the event. Dr. Haseeb Ahmed welcomed the panelists and guests to the event and wrapped up the event with a thank you to all involved. Austin Lepole was the emcee and facilitated the introduction of each couple. Taylor Windau and Erica Meade operated the music and Sofey Fugate served as photographer. Fashion models were Andrew Dinger, Austin Lepole, Mark Anderson, Nicole Millar, Kyle Karaffa, Allison Farroni, Ryan O’Neill, Jackie Becker, Johanna Becker, Nick Johnson, Christy Anzur, Austin Eaton, Paige Paxson, Bryce Riggs, Emily Nolting, Jack Eifel and Taylor Lewis.
