Models make it professional at Raiders’ Closet fashion show

Models will showcase professional wear and business-savvy confidence during a fashion show from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 1, in the State Farm Lecture Hall of MTSU’s Business and Aerospace Building.

Raiders’ Closet is the brainchild of Dr. K. Virginia Hemby-Grubb, a professor in the Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship in MTSU’s Jennings A. Jones College of Business.

Hemby-Grubb discovered that many students are ignorant of the type of clothing they need to make a good impression on a prospective employer. Others simply can’t afford clothing suitable for the workplace.

The gently used items donated to Raiders’ Closet, which is housed in Room 130A of the Business and Aerospace Building, include suits, ties, dresses, blouses, skirts and accessories in a variety of sizes for both male and female students.

Supporters of the Raiders’ Closet fashion show include Belk, Jos. A. Bank and the Men’s Wearhouse.

Donations may be made at Raiders’ Closet each Friday or in the BCE departmental office, located in Room 429N of the Business and Aerospace Building, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information, contact Hemby-Grubb at 615-898-2369 or virginia.hemby-grubb@mtsu.edu or Jaye Kiblinger, executive aide for the Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship, at 615-898-2902 or jaye.kiblinger@mtsu.edu.
