Kent State has one of the biggest fashion schools in the country, and this time of year, they’re always doing big things with student projects. As with the concerts I shot previously,I’m happy to help the school since I’m still in the area. In lieu of a normal runway show, the event took place at the 157 Lounge, a local bar. Models stood on platforms in the middle of the bar, allowing guests wander through to examine the students’ work. It’s a clever idea and gave me some photographic opportunities outside the standard runway shots. Of course, the fact that the outfits were as awesome as they were didn’t hurt either.
