The Hub on Canal announced on November 5 that they will continue their partnership to support the New Smyrna Beach After School Fashion Club for middle and high school students by sponsoring the Razzle Dazzle Fashion Show to be held in the spring.  The event, which will take place on May 19, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM at the Brannon Center (105 S Riverside Drive), will feature haute couture designs created by middle and high school students from New Smyrna Beach and Edgewater.  Tickets for the event will go on sale in April for $35.00.

The Razzle Dazzle fashion event will showcase the efforts of nearly a dozen students. Each student will create two haute couture fashion designs to be modeled in the show.  A video documentary created by will be shown, highlighting the students’ journey throughout the year.  The event will be emceed by Kaylee from the Morning VIBE, and food and drink will be provided by Riverside Catering.

The New Smyrna Beach After School Fashion Club was developed as a partnership between the City of New Smyrna Beach and The Hub on Canal.  Led by New Smyrna Beach Middle School Art Teacher, Samantha Hughes, club members are learning about the basics of fashion design, sewing, career opportunities in the fashion industry, fashion design marketing, branding, modeling, and hair and make up.  Industry professionals and local businesses are supporting the program, offering their knowledge and expertise to the students.  Through this program, students are provided with important technical, design, and career skills that will last a lifetime and help them build confidence and self-esteem.

“We are excited to present this premier event that highlights the many talents of teens in our community,” said Vicki White, Director of Community Outreach and Grants for The Hub on Canal.  “The students are working hard not only to learn fashion design, but also to understand the behind the scenes activity that is associated with a career in the fashion industry.”

The After School Fashion program has been the dream of Nancy Maddox, Leisure Services Director for the City of New Smyrna Beach.  “This program is an idea that I have wanted to develop for more than six years,” said Maddox.  “I am very happy to be able to partner with The Hub on Canal to offer this important opportunity to the children in our community.”

Proceeds from the event will be used to support the after school fashion club, The Hub on Canal community outreach programs, and the City of New Smyrna Beach children’s programming.  Donations and sponsorship opportunities are available through The Hub on Canal.  Please contact Nancy Maddox, Director of Leisure Services for the City of New Smyrna Beach, at (386) 410-2890 or Vicki White, Director of Grants and Outreach for The Hub on Canal, at (386) 957-3924 for details about how you can support this important program.
