Sponsored by the Visual Arts Club, the show was an opportunity for students to promote styles and clothing from area shops and designers and give local businesses a boost before the busy holiday shopping season.
The models showed off a wide variety of day and evening wear on a makeshift runway in a lecture hall.
Student Nick Frasca, who helped run the event, said that, for men, the Nashua look boiled down to jeans and a plaid shirt.
"You can add a little polish with some bright colors, a scarf and maybe some nice jewelry," she said.
The audience was especially impressed with a funky full-length white lace ruffled dressed topped by a blue knit bodice modeled by Kaitlin Girard.
