On Friday Nov. 1, the Innovative Fashion Association (IFA) hosted its second annual 1920s-themed event, “The Happening,” in Senior Hall.
The night included mocktails provided by Fresh Ideas and a candy bar provided by the members of IFA. Guests were able to take pictures in the photo booth while they enjoyed their mocktails and candy.
“This event was very classy and elegant,” Jenna Westra, freshman, said.
Three local vendors also attended the event: Mavin, Fashion 217 and Mustard Seed. The companies set up tables and sold their products.
Mavin is a small boutique run by Stephens alumna Jenny Bouatay.
Fashion 217 is a class at Stephens that uses fair trade fabric or scrap fabric from various past projects. All of the profit that the class made will go toward the charity Dress for Success.
Mustard Seed is a store downtown that has fair trade items; the bracelets are hand-made and then sold in the store.
“The vendors were a great idea!” Alex Lema, freshman, said.
Members of IFA made all of the decorations for the evening. The organization had been planning this event since mid-September.
“Everyone looked amazing and the event went great,” freshman Courtney Huels said.
IFA is currently accepting new members. Any student is welcome to join or attend meetings.
