students from the Fashion Merchandising 358 classEun Jin Hwang's students from the Fashion Merchandising 358 class worked to produce “Konkrete Jungle” for their Fashion Show Production class. Students spent all semester prepping and planning for their show on April 12, 2016. The show was a huge success. "Konkrete Jungle" sold out over 200 seats in the HUB Ohio Room.

Designers from all over the country came to sponsor the merchandise featured and sold at the show. With a combination of ticket sales, donations, and a 50/50 raffle, the show raised over $600. The students decided to have all of their profits go to the Alice Paul House in Indiana.

The Alice Paul Institute is a nonprofit corporation with several different houses across the United States that help people who are the victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes. It is a place for victims to live for free, where they are guided by the help of employees and volunteers. The students who produced Konkrete Jungle sent out invitations to the employees of the Indiana Alice Paul House.
