“I am incredibly excited for our students to showcase their talents and creativity through this year’s fashion show,” said GCC’s fashion instructor, Laura Taylor. “Ageless is a truly immersive production, featuring pre-show interviews, photo-ops with coordinators, and a post-show party and vendor market. Our students have put in a tremendous amount of work and effort to make this year’s show a truly unforgettable experience.”
