For over a decade, Miami University’s Fashion and Design organization have hosted an annual fashion show showcasing student designers, models, and artists. Each year the show has become grander as MUF&D gains members, attendees, sponsors, and esteem.
Just this semester at Miami University, MUF&D received the Women’s Giving Circle Grant and was awarded $10,000 to implement experimental learning projects in the years to come. The fashion and design organization also received their biggest sponsor to date, with the Ascena Retail Group joining in on this year’s fashion show. With all of this growth and success, MUF&D’s 13th annual fashion show is sure to be the best one yet.
The theme of this year’s show is Elements, and the event will feature aspects of earth, water, air, and fire. The show has been promoted with spectacular images shot by student photographers, as well as a promotional video (shown below) showcasing each element. Leading up to the Elements Fashion Show on Saturday, April 27, MUF&D is hosting daily events campus-wide to promote student attendance.
These daily activities around campus will be focused around the fashion show and each element: earth, water, air, and fire. MUF&D members will be sharing important information about the show, purchasing tickets, and refreshments will be available so be sure to stop by!
With this year’s Elements theme, MUF&D has set a focus on sustainability, and items from their highly successful clothing swap (read about it here) held earlier in the school year will be featured in the show along with hand created pieces made by student designers. To further promote sustainable fashion, executive speaker and fashion sustainability expert Liz Ricketts will be speaking on Tuesday to MUF&D members as well as other students on the importance of this movement.
Doors open at 6pm on Saturday, April 27th and the show will begin promptly at 8pm in Millett Hall. You can order your tickets at www.mufd.givesmart.com , or in the bio of the MUF&D instagram page. Be sure to reserve your seat for this fabulous annual event!
