UNLV has always been a fountainhead for creativity, innovation, and setting the trend. It is in this spirit that The Expressor was founded in 2016. Our university's student body teems with talent, but the outlets for artistic expression are limited. There is a systemic underappreciation of the arts and their profound impact on our lives. Budding artists often turn away from their passions due to perceptions that their talents are undervalued or worthless in society. Our organization seeks to be the vehicle that empowers and enables these individuals in an otherwise indifferent world. Since our inception, we have prided ourselves on the pursuit of this mission, holding multiple talent shows, fashion showcases, and other events for the community.
The Big One
On November 17th, 2018 we will be realizing our greatest endeavor to date: Reset the Trend, a fashion and performance show at Vegas' International Peace Education Center, featuring fashion designers, models, and performers handpicked from the most talented of UNLV's student body. Our goal is to put together a blockbuster event that puts a spotlight on the potential of these young artists.
We Need You!
This ambitious event has been nearly a year in the making. Our team has left no stone unturned in our efforts to turn our aspirations into reality. Such an occasion carries with it a substantial price tag, and over the last several months we have pursued every path to make costs manageable. We consulted local leaders in fashion and event planning, reached out to local community businesses, journeyed to Los Angeles' fabled fashion district in search of sponsorships and connections. Thanks to the generosity of the community, we secured a beautiful venue to host our event at a greatly reduced cost. We've done everything we can, and now that we've reached the home stretch, we ask you for your help in getting us across the finish line. We owe it to our campus' young talent to provide them a space and a spotlight to show the world what Rebels are made of. Join us and let's make this occasion a stunning success.
