As all fashion majors must know, being that it is fall, we are currently looking ahead to our spring season. In the natural progression of planning for our spring season, the fashion students are in the midst of planning our 32nd annual fashion show. Things are looking promising with our recent donation along with the vast amount of progress towards the show. I would like to have the pleasure to officially announce our spring 2013 fashion show entitled
Fashion Forward will represent an edgy, reinvented and design oriented show. This will be the first fashion show where we will have two years of design students involved, so I am excited to see what unique original designs will be presented on the runway this year. The design students tend to be confidential when it comes to releasing their spring designs, however they have shared a few of the inspirations for their clothing.
As for another new concept, this will be the first show that the fashion program is extending our outreach to our local designers as well as non-design majors at the college. Anyone who is ambitious enough to get involved in this year’s show is welcome to be a part of it.
To give you a better understanding of the show there are “base scenes” and “new scenes”. “New scenes” are new concepts for scenes created by the students that are generally unique to the current fashion show year. “Base scenes” are, for the most part, scenes that are always in the show. Those scenes are a cultural scene, lingerie scene, children’s scene and bridal scene. These scenes tend to have a bigger audience pull therefore to keep our numbers up we include these scenes. These are some examples of “base scenes” concepts for Fashion Forward.
We have excelled so far into the show this year, scene proposals have already been created, designers are creating product, and our class has come to a conclusion of an overall theme. I cannot wait to see what the spring fashion show beholds.
