/PRNewswire / -- Pattern, color, multicultural, style moxie and fluidity all describe the senior fashion collections that will be presented and modeled on May 9, 2009 at Grady High School; 8 p.m. The show is guaranteed to rival the finest professional shows in the southeast.

Ten (10) senior designers will champion looks that are "on trend" for 2009. Sheer, Metallics, Gladiators, Eco-Fashion, Ethnicware, Fast Fashion, Fruit Salad (or mixed prints), muffin tops, and a multitude of palettes will delight beyond measure.

A vivacious set design will be constructed by the Grady Art Department, G-Stage, led by the unbelievable creative efforts of John Brandhorst, Arts Academy Director, and Jake Dreiling, technical director. Additional set design by Scenario Custom Scenery. Hair styling & make up by the fabulous Carter Barnes and Sweet Pea Spa. Jewelry provided by Wendy Babchin Designer Group.

Six years ago, E. Vincent Martinez launched UrbanCouture with just 40 students. Today, the 100-student program is a foundation of the school's arts academy. Over 100 Grady students serve as models, lighting and sound technicians, graphic designers, musicians, volunteers and more. The program and its platform provide students with the skills and tools necessary to develop, unveil, and fuse fashion. This alluring environment grants the freedoms and expressions which arm the students with the confidence to pursue and become emerging designers.

The Senior Fashion Collections will be unveiled Saturday, May 9th at 8:00 PM in the Grady High School Gymnasium. There is only one show so please purchase your tickets early. Tickets on sale @ for $15.00. For more information, email: or phone E. Vincent Martinez at 404-216-8722 or Sherri Lamar at 770.403.4066.
