Eletra CasadeiOn Saturday, November 4, a Runway Fashion Show and Luncheon celebrating the legacy of L.A. fashion designer Eletra Casadei and her impact on the costume designs of SUU’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance will be held at noon in the Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA). Tickets are $25 per person or $200 for a table of eight and can be purchased at SUMA or at www.suu.edu/pva. A portion of the sales will go toward the Eletra Casadei Legacy Scholarship.

L.A. fashion designer Eletra Casadei was an innovative and favored designer generating buzz with her TD4 (To Die For) prom dress designs created with teenage girls’ desires in mind. She created “prom parties” to kick off the fashion season, first-of-its-kind fashion videos showcasing her elegant gowns and original beaded and lace fabric designs. Her Casadei line embodied Eletra’s true fashion philosophy; to create a sense of Hollywood Glamour that was affordable and made every woman feel beautiful.

Members of the Cedar City and Southern Utah University community, including Cedar City Mayor Maile Wilson, SUU’s Executive Director of Brand Strategy Ellen Treanor, and Executive Assistant to the Provost, Aimee Uchman, are participating in a unique runway fashion show featuring the designs of Eletra Casadei and the Southern Utah University Department of Theatre Arts & Dance.

Attendees will have a chance to participate in a silent auction and an opportunity to win various items at the event. If you are unable to attend, you can still contribute to the scholarship by visiting www.suu.edu/giving and indicating that you would like your donation to go to the Eletra Casadei Legacy Scholarship. This scholarship will benefit SUU theatre students pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in costume design.
