College of Design 50th Annual Apparel Design Fashion Show
This is Now marks the 50th Anniversary of the University of Minnesota fashion show. This year, collections range from men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, to genderless clothing. Each collection has a unique inspiration and story. Some of the collections feature commentaries on important issues of today, such as sustainability and racial violence. Selections of work from the sophomore and junior apparel classes will be featured, as well as from the senior class.
This event also features a retrospective exhibit called Now and Then: Fashion Show @ 50 by the Goldstein Museum of Design. This exhibit includes work by Apparel Design program Alumni, as well from the senior class. The exhibit will run from February 3rd to April 26th.
The annual fashion show is a tradition and rite of passage for Apparel Design seniors and sets a high standard for student work in Minnesota. The students are proud to host community professionals, the Minnesota fashion community, faculty, family and friends to celebrate this astounding array of work. Please join in the celebration at one of two shows the evening of February 10th, 2018 in Rapson Hall.
