The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire will host its third annual Fashion Empire 2011- Casino Royale scholarship fundraiser and student design competition fashion show on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at the Million Air Hangar located at 295 North Leland Norton Way, San Bernardino, CA 92408. The event promotes the school’s Fashion Designers and Fashion & Retail Management programs. All proceeds from the ticket and poker tournament sales will go towards scholarships for these programs.
The venue is a hangar for private jet planes, and was chosen to house the event because it encompasses the production’s “007, Casino Royale” theme. Additionally, the space will be staged for a stylish Casino Royale-inspired student fashion show competition. The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire Fashion Design students will be competing to earn a Grand Prize Scholarship of $2,500. The Second Place winner will earn a $1,000 Scholarship.
Adding to the evening’s glam factor is a special showcase featuring the couture designs of Project Runway designer Michael Costello. A special pre-fashion show performance will be made by America’s Best Dance Crew season four winners We Are Heroes; followed by headlining songstress, Macy Gray.
