Models are stomping the catwalk all over town this week.

Friday is CCAD's senior showcase, and on Saturday, students of Ohio State's Fashion Production Association will dress models in designs influenced by the current trends in world metropolises such as Tokyo, Paris and Rio de Janeiro. Entry to this year's OSU show, aptly titled "Culture Shock," costs $15 at the door.

Tuesday, the Aveda Institute is hosting its annual Earth Jam Fashion Night Benefit. General admission is $20 at the door. The show - styled by Aveda Institute Columbus and New York's Scott J. Salon artistic team - promises outfits, makeup and hair that would make Lady Gaga giddy.
