Mesa College fashion students take their talent to the runway with the annual Golden Scissors Fashion Show.  Themed “East Meets West,” the fashion show – an annual production since 1981 – is a fun, fabulous, runway event for all fashionistas. It will be held at 5:30 p.m., Friday, May 6, at the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island Drive.

“It’s a fun night and a fun way to culminate months of hard work, planning and collaboration, and two semesters of intense study,” said fashion professor Meegan Feori. “We are proud to showcases our students’ creativity and talent, and what the southern California fashion industry has to look forward to when they graduate and enter the workforce.”

Over 100 pieces – from kimono themed garments to casual and business attire to hats and children’s collections -- will make their debut. All pieces are original designs, conceived and constructed by fashion design students.

In fact, the entire show is a student production. The fashion promotion class coordinates the execution of the show, including publicity, fundraising and event production. Mesa’s media majors take care of lighting and audio. Hair and make-up services are provided by cosmetology students from San Diego City College. Design collections of Mesa College fashion alumni will also be featured.

Golden Scissors kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina with a VIP reception, silent auction, and opportunity drawings. All proceeds go toward student scholarships. The runway extravaganza begins at 7:30 p.m.

VIP tickets are $50; $20 general admission with discounts for students and presale. Visit (May 5) for more information. Tickets can be purchased online at, or call 619-388-2205.
