The local point 3.8 fashion show takes place at the Everbank Terrace Suites and is produced by the students of the Fashion Marketing & Management program at the Art Institute of Jacksonville. Tickets are $20. Tickets available here.

Every Body is Beautiful // March 12, 7 PM @ UNF

If your fashion diet consisted of only Vogue, and most major fashion blogs, you'd get tired of seeing the same old body types pretty quickly. As we all know, not everyone is a six-foot-tall, statuesque model, but that doesn't mean they can't don chic ensembles—and have fun doing it. Next Wednesday, CHIC (Couture Helps Inspire Charity) at the University of North Florida will host "Every Body is Beautiful," a fashion show celebrating a wide array of body types as well as local fashions from area boutiques. The event takes place March 12, 7 PM in Student Ballrooms B and C. I'll be on hand to take some photos at the event so, if you're interested in taking in some fun fashion (or just want your picture taken for the magazine), stop on by!

Guest speakers from The Body Image Counseling Center and UNF's Women Center will also be on hand, to discuss the pressures young adults face when it comes to body image. Don your most stylish ensemble (it is a fashion show, after all) and feel good in the skin you're in. For more information, visit the group's Facebook page.
