Seventeen models worked with six stylists and designers under the direction of Batya Septimus, the fellowship coordinator at CERRU, who conceived the idea of an inter-cultural fashion show as a senior at Queens College.

"Fashioning Our Identities" fits into the CERRU mission by highlighting the complexity of identity and how individuals negotiate their identities, according to Septimus.
"Usually at a fashion show, the model is a human hanger," Septimus said.
