The name itself grabs your attention, and the meaning behind it captures your interest.
On December 1, 2016 from 7:30-9:30 pm in the MLK Parlor A, the “Anything But Clothes Fashion Show” was held in honor of World AIDS Day. Brandywine Counseling and Community Service (BCCS) partnered with DSU to raise awareness, prevention, education and testing to host the 3rd annual fashion show.
Along with BCCS, DSU is partnering with the Delaware Health and Social Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and Community Outreach and Prevention Education (COPE) under the BCCS.
Students and staff entered to compete in the runway, in which clothing was made out of preventing and risk reducing materials such as condoms, lubricant packs, dental dams, etc. Materials are given by coordinator, Rebekah Nuttall.
The contestant with the best design was entered to win a monetary prize of $300.
“For 30 years, Brandywine Counseling and Community Services (BCCS) has been a trustworthy source of HIV/AIDS prevention education and holistic care. In Delaware there are over 3,400 people living with HIV/AIDS – we will continue to work tirelessly until that number drops dramatically,” said CEO of BCCS, Dr Lynn Fahey.
