Stylish models stroll seamlessly

The ’60s hippie patterns, ’70s disco pants, the ’80s colorful palettes and the ’90s “Macarena” were some of the prevalent pop culture trends that guests introduced to SE April 1.

Five Decades of Fashion and Luncheon revived the most popular music and fashion from the 1960s until the 2000s to celebrate TCC’s 50th anniversary. The models were SE students, staff and faculty.

One of the models, English instructor Arlandis Jones, said he was glad to do something for TCC.

“Modeling was not hard,” he said. “We just had to bring our personality on the stage.”

SE president’s assistant Michael Cinatl and hospitality management instructor Talia Dancer started organizing this event three months ago. To Cinatl, seeing everybody dancing happily in the end was the best part.

“Getting the fashions together had to be the most difficult part,” he said. “Seeing it all happen today is very rewarding.”

Eddna Adams, another staff model, is a SE academic advisor.

“I had a great time,” she said. “It’s always fun participating in school activities.”

Several were disappointed with the 2000s fashion. According to them, it wasn’t an accurate representation.

“I felt like the fashion of the 2000s didn’t fit right,” said Mohammad Zoubi, a SE finance student, “Other than that, everything was well put together. Overall, it was very nice.”

Raghad Appas, another SE student, said her main motive to come to the show was the 2000s.

“The fashion and the music to the 2000s are closer to what I know and like,” she said.

Another student who attended, Marilyn Bujang, liked the ’60s better.

“The ’60s were my favorite,” she said. “I like the outfits and the colors. They were more decent. The music was also more meaningful.”
