Raleigh Fashion Week was a celebration of fashion, beauty, music and dance. Brian Wiliams gleaned the momentum he gained from STRUT’08 to produce an expanded fashion showcase.
The three day event featured fashion, music, and dance along with talent, healthy living seminars, vendor displays, trunk shows and evening runway fashion shows.
Brian Williams of Brian Williams Television tapped School of Communication Arts for talent in front of the camera and behind the camera. Audio professor, Craig Brandwynne and his company Center Sound Records sponsored the talent for the three night event.
SCA Audio students brought their time and talent to STRUT09. The crew included Nicholas Talford, Faith Langley, Jason Wiggs, Timothy Jamison and Calvin Clark, Jr., as well as alumnus, Frank Carbone.
Nicholas Talford was Technical Director for the main stage assisted by Calvin Clark, Jr. Graduate and artist, Frank Carbone performed Friday night on the main stage with a five piece backup group featuring Faith Langley. Frank credits Timothy Jamison with his great choreography.
DJ Jason Wiggs was named the official DJ of STRUT09 early on by Brian Williams. DJ Jason Wiggs was responsible for performing all music selections live and “on the fly” for each night. Jason determined the flow of the entire show through his music. He worked in conjunction with three different emcees and gave each their cues for what to say, when to say their next lines and brought the music in and out as they were speaking.
Looking forward to SRUT’10.
