SMC Fashion Program to Host LA Mode 2024

The Show Will Highlight 20 Collections, Showcasing a Variety of Styles From Casual to Avant-Garde, Created by SMC’s Fashion Students

The Santa Monica College Fashion Program will present its annual student fashion show, LA Mode 2024, on Friday, June 14, at 7 p.m. in the CPC Courtyard on the SMC Main Campus, 1900 Pico Blvd. The theme for this year’s event is “Timeless Style & Substance.”

Tickets for the event are priced at $25, with a discounted rate of $20 for college students with valid ID. They can be purchased in advance at smc.edu/tickets, with a small service fee. The event kicks off at 5 p.m. with the outdoor “Peach Carpet” featuring sponsor giveaways, marketplace stalls, and opportunities for SMC alumni, students, and fashion industry guests to mingle.

The show will highlight 20 collections, showcasing a variety of styles from casual to avant-garde, created by SMC’s fashion students. The event is organized by Fashion Show Production students, under the guidance of Professors La Tanya Louis, Lorrie Ivas, and Wynn Armstrong.

The collections, developed over two years by a diverse group of students, will be judged by industry professionals, including SMC alums who now offer internships. Judges will evaluate the collections based on marketability, creativity, sustainability, technical achievement, and overall excellence, with winners announced live at the show.

The event is sponsored by the Magna Carta Foundation, with prizes donated by Netflix, Tukatech, Aims360, and other industry supporters. The Salvation Army’s Western USA Thrift Stores sponsor a sustainability challenge, “Transformed Treasures,” where students redesign “end-of-life” garments.

Additionally, the evening will honor Jade Sykes with the eighth annual Style and Substance Award for her contributions to the fashion industry and dedication to increasing minority representation.

More information is available at smc.edu/LaMode or by emailing LaMode@smc.edu.
