ASO Takes On Fashion Amid COVID

Despite the pandemic, fashion must go on and Central Connecticut’s African Student Organization did just that at its annual fashion show.

Student models strutted across the stage in Welte Auditorium, draped in vibrant African gourmets. Each one took viewers on a journey through the culture of Africa, just as the show was entitled, Vol Ver L’Afrique.

While the fashion show highlighted various countries in Africa with colorful suits and intricate gowns, the audience also bore witness to exotic music and entertaining dance moves from the models and even fellow crowd members. Along with this, viewers enjoyed live performances from fellow CCSU students.

ASO produced a moving showcase with CCSU senior Olawunmi Sodipo capturing the audience’s attention with her powerful poetry as fellow senior, Nehway Sahn, soothed them with her guitar and original music.

Though the auditorium kept students apart in order to execute CDC guidelines, the Blue Devil spirit shined in Welte as students cheered on their peers from the socially-distanced stands.
