College of Design 48th Annual Apparel Design Fashion Show



Discovering one’s IDENTITY is a continuous evolution, an attempt to strike a balance between self exploration and finding one’s place within a community. As the seniors in the Apparel Design program in the College of Design near the completion of their degrees, they dare to define themselves through a collection of work evoked from personal experience and their education throughout the program.

While their individual styles are diverse, their collections find commonality in the passion, creativity, and enthusiasm this exemplary group of students brings to fashion and design. The designs they present will range from ready-to-wear to couture, catering to a variety of lifestyles. It will include women’s, men’s, and children’s wear and explore lingerie, bridal, zero-waste pattern cutting and everything in between.

The annual senior 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 industry professionals, the MN 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 6th, 2016 in Rapson Hall.
