On Wednesday, May 14th, the fashion design and fashion retail management students of Columbia College present their 11th annual fashion show. The show takes place at the school’s new 1000 S. Wabash Avenue facility, and tickets will cost $35 for the 1pm matinee and $60 for 7pm evening show.
This year, the jury-selected student designers will work to blend fashion and technology—in the form of computer-generated graphics—into their designs, merging the two in completely fresh and innovative ways. The designers were given the challenge of incorporating a specific color into their designs, with this year’s signature hue being purple. Students will also concentrate on using raw muslin stock, to create an eco-friendly and natural look. All designs will be perfectly juxtaposed with the thoroughly technological and manmade graphic designs that will be a part of this year’s buzzed-about staging. The students have spent nine months conceptualizing these artistic collaborations, and for many of them, this unique platform signifies the culmination of their college experience, as many of the pieces are from senior collections.
