At the beginning of the spring term, the Fashion Honors Group was given the
opportunity to plan, produce, and execute the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale
semi-annual Bachelor Fashion Show.

After many meetings headed by Mr. West and Mrs. Tatakis, the theme, “Elements,” was born, where earth, wind,
water, and fire came together for one powerful show.
