MURFREESBORO — Raiders’ Closet is opening its doors and putting job interview fashions on the runway.

Models will show off the types of clothing appropriate for a professional appearance during a fashion show from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 1, in the State Farm Lecture Hall of MTSU’s Business and Aerospace Building.

Raiders’ Closet is the brainchild of Dr. K. Virginia Hemby-Grubb, a professor in the Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship. She discovered that many students are ignorant of the type of clothing they need to make a good impression on a prospective employer, and others simply can’t afford nice clothes.

The gently used items donated to Raiders’ Closet, which is housed in Business and Aerospace Room 130A, include suits, ties, dresses, blouses, skirts and accessories in a variety of sizes for both male and female students.

Supporters of the Raiders’ Closet fashion show include Belk, Jos. A. Bank, and Men’s Wearhouse.

Donations may be made at Raiders’ Closet each Friday or in the Business Communication and Entrepreneurship office in Room 429N of the Business and Aerospace Building between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information, contact Hemby-Grubb at 615-898-2369 or, or Jaye Kiblinger at 615-898-2902 or
