When I think of fashion I usually next think of money. These two items often go hand-in-hand. However, this Friday you will have a great opportunity to have your fill of fashion for absolutely free. The University of Texas Textiles and Apparel program will be hosting their annual end of year fashion show on April 24th at the Frank Erwin Center.
The show, titled “Luminous,” will feature the work of over 20 senior designers who have been working all semester. They have spent lots of time preparing for the show, each designing four separate pieces. The items will include daywear, casual wear, evening gowns and bridal gowns.
It is a community-wide event that everyone can enjoy. Last year there were over 5,000 attendees to the show. It’s a great way to spend your Friday evening. There will be lots to see at this exciting show.
The School of Human Ecology puts on the fashion show each year to showcase the work of graduating seniors. The event begins at 6:40 pm with an exposition of all of the student’s clothing. The main event, the fashion show, will begin at 8:00 pm. The 2009 show will feature professional models and makeup artists to accompany the designs.
Come out to help support these young designers as they begin their career in the fashion industry. Their styles will be judged by professional designers, fashion journalists, and others in the business.
