Former MSU basketball star Lauren Aitch will soon host the third annual Hidden Key Fashion Show and raise funds for early cancer detection research. A 2009 graduate of MSU’s College of Communication Arts and Sciences, Aitch began designing clothing while playing professional basketball in Copenhagen.

Aitch launched her own clothing business, Lady Aitch Copenhagen, which made its runway debut at the first Hidden Key Fashion Show held on the MSU campus and featured local celebrity models, including MSU coaches, their spouses, alumni athletes, plus community leaders, media personalities and others.

Presented by the Aitch Foundation, the fashion show raises funds for research into early detection devices for all cancers. The foundation will provide annual support for an Aitch Fellow, an advanced graduate student at MSU whose research is focused on early cancer detection. Through the office of the vice president for research and graduate studies, graduate students will be selected for the fellowship award through a call for research proposals submitted for faculty review.

The 2014 grant recipient will be announced at the Hidden Key Fashion Show in May, and will give a brief presentation of his or her research project.
