Love Your Body Day promotes fashion reality

Project Reality Runway, Tech’s alternative fashion show, returns Tuesday at dead hour in the RUC Multipurpose Room.

Promoting positive self-images, organizers of the fashion show want participants and guests to leave understanding beauty is not just skin-deep.  Challenging the standards placed on women and men by the media, Project Reality Runway celebrates individuals who are willing to be just that, individual.

On Tuesday, a diverse faculty and student group will strut their stuff on the walkway.  Reinforcing the message of the day, each participant will wear an outfit that shows who they are as a person.

Even if you are not in the fashion show, organizers encourage all guests to follow suit and wear something that shows you for you, not what the media expects.  

In addition to the runway show, WTTU DJs will be playing music and emceeing the events with plenty of free goodies for everyone who visits.

Several of the pictures taken of participants and guests will be shown in November on the Be-You-tiful Display Board.

Project Reality Runway is part of the Love Your Body Day program brought to life by the TTU Women’s Center with the help of TTU Lambda and WTTU.
