PHILADELPHIA — The University of Pennsylvania's second annual fashion week culminated Friday night with a "Carnaval"-themed fashion show displaying the collections of 23 student designers.
Penn's fashion week 2008 appealed to hundreds of students who were eager to learn more about the fashion industry. From March 29 to Saturday, several on-campus events gave fashion-enthused coeds a chance to discover the professional opportunities within the industry. Trunk shows, beauty workshops and guest speakers all grabbed the attention of students whose appetite for the industry is not fully satisfied through their Ivy League academic pursuits.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
