2013 student fashion show hits the runway March 24

The Department of Art, Art History and Design at Michigan State University is hosting the 2013 annual Apparel and Textile Design Student Fashion Show at 7 p.m. March 24 in the Pasant Theatre at Wharton Center.

This evening of cutting-edge fashion will feature the creative explorations of 50 emerging designers studying Apparel and Textile Design in the Department of Art, Art History and Design within the College of Arts and Letters at MSU.

Held annually, this juried runway show is a culmination of creative explorations ranging from classic to avant-garde fashion. Before the runway premier on Sunday, students were actively engaged in the design and construction process for several months. Outside the studio these designers worked with faculty to plan the show from A to Z. From model casting calls to the designer jury process, the show represents a significant professional development opportunity for these future fashion designers.

Awards will be presented at the close of the runway show.

An exciting addition to the show this year is the FASH Forward fashion design competition inspired by fashion icons from the past 50 years in honor of the College of Arts and Letters 50th Anniversary.

Advanced ticket sales are encouraged. Tickets can be purchased from the Wharton Center online at or by phone at 1-800-WHARTON.
