Black Student Union featured clothing by Marshalls, H&M, and Joyce Leslie.

After the fashion was completed Brown stated, "It has been a lot of time, money, and overwhelming stress. But, at the end of the day, when all is said and done, I am so proud of everything that my board has been able to accomplish for this event."
