After 70 years, you can bet we know how to throw a party!
Stevens – The Institute of Business & Arts (Siba) celebrated 70 years of
service to the St. Louis area by throwing a one-of-a-kind fashion production in
the heart of the city’s revitalized garment district.
To helm the production, Siba partnered with alumna
Jacquelyne Craig. Jacquelyne graduated with a degree in Retail Management/Fashion
Merchandising and used the skills she learned at Siba to create her own
company, Blaq Séance Productions. Along with a team of amazing Siba student volunteers,
Jacquelyne produced an impressive show, using Washington Avenue along the
street’s iconic cobblestone zipper as the runway!
Ahead of the show, attendees were invited to tour our campus,
snack on appetizers, and check out a live artistic rendering of the venue,
including our loft-style building and the runway—Washington Avenue.
The production showcased eight talented local designers
including Aileen Woods, Barbara Bultman, Brandin Vaughn, Kelley Boster, Yolanda
Newson, Veto, Alex Carter, and Kelsy Ross.
