    Palomar College students test out the runway as they make preparations for the Palomar College Moda Fashion Show at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido on Thursday.

    Palomar College's fashion design and merchandising students as well as student designers from five local high schools ---- Fallbrook, Poway and three schools in Southwest Riverside County ---- will watch their work walk down the runway Friday at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido.

    Organizer David Solomon estimates that he had put in 135 hours while helping to plan the two-hour show, which begins at 7 p.m. and costs $15 to attend.

    The designers will be showing off their clothing lines ---- defined as five or more coordinating garments ---- at an event organized and run by students learning how to showcase fashion merchandise.

    Even some of the models will come from the college, after seeing posters for the event and applying to walk the runway.
