Aggie Fashion Club has movie night fundraiser


The Aggie Fashion Club is partnering with Allen Theatres for a Movie Night “Fun”draiser, beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at Allen Theatres’ Telshor 12, 2811 N. Telshor Blvd.

The movie is “The Devil Wears Prada,” the 2006 blockbuster starring Meryl Streep, Ann Hathaway and Stanley Tucci.

Tickets are $15 each.

Funds raised will support the club’s membership in the National Retail Federation (NRF), said Kelley Coffeen, Ph.D., an assistant professor of fashion merchandising and design in NMSU’s Department of Family and Consumer Sciences and club co-sponsor.

“The Fashion Merchandising and Design program is so grateful that our students are willing to fundraise to continue our membership in NRF,” Coffeen said. “This allows our students to connect with industry professionals in real time during the semester. For example, students participate in recruiter chats, which companies like Amazon, Macy’s, Williams & Sonoma, Dick’s Sporting Goods offer so students can connect with industry recruiters and find out about internships, skills needed, career paths and jobs after graduation.”

“The NRF has been an amazing resource for us students to connect with the fashion retail industry now and meet recruiters who can help prepare us for jobs after we graduate,” Aggie Fashion Club President Alex Ruvalcaba said. “With the money we raise and generous help from Allen Theatres, it will also support our annual upcycle/recycle sustainable fashion show that takes place every spring.”

For tickets, contact Coffeen at 575-646-1183 and kcoffeen@nmsu.edu or Ruvalcaba at 575-441-4173 and alexr415@nmsu.edu.

NRF, founded in 1911, is the world’s largest retail trade association. It represents nearly four million retail establishments nationwide and more than 50 million employees.
