Since 2000, the NWSD fashion shows has grown from strength to strength.  From glitz to glam.  But, as the 2007 Graduation Fashion Show holds the re'cord for being the most talked about, most glam NWSD show to date, 2010 will see a Graduation Fashion Extrava'ganza that will kick-some serious fashion-butt!


Yes!  The class of 2010 will outwit, outshine and outstyle the infamous 2007 show!  For years to come, the 2010 show will go down in fashion history as the year of fashion renaissance.
