Alabama A&M University offers an undergraduate degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising. Each year the Advanced Clothing Design class is required to produce a fashion show which features the original designs created by the students. The show is entitled the Fashion Extravaganza and it has been an annual event on the campus for over 30 years. The Extravaganza used to be part of the School of Agriculture Week; however, with retooling of departments within the school and accompanying budget cuts, the funds for the annual event are no longer available. The students are are now required to raise their own funds in order to produce the show.

The objective of the show, besides showcasing the students' original designs, is to give them the experience of producing a professional show. This gives them an opportunity to gain valuable experience for future employment. The funds we need to raise will go to the show production, such as lighting, staging, etc. This fundraiser will also help defray the cost of fabric and notions for the students' fashion designs.
