FASHION PORN: Broward College's GradSHOEation

Footwear fashion gave the ol' cap-and-gown a little panache at Broward College's 82 commencement ceremony Dec. 18 at BB&T Center in Sunrise. The pre-event party started with the May 2013 ceremony after school administrators noticed students were sporting outlandish shoes to stand out a bit in a sea of sameness. "Shoes have become a major focal point at commencement, and we thought this event would be a great way to engage with our students and also celebrate this milestone in their lives in a really unique way," explains Daniela Circonciso, Broward College's digital media manager. Once again, the event was accompanied by a shoe drive which - through a partnership with local charity organization In Jacob's Shoes - allowed the Fall 2014 graduating class to leave their old shoes behind before putting on new ones.
