The Spring Fashion Show is a truly collaborative effort within the fashion program. Students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design degree program were required to design, select materials and create each look on the runway. Students in the Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Marketing & Management gained first hand experience of what it’s like to run a fashion show by promoting the event, selling tickets and managing the backstage responsibilities.

All proceeds from the event will benefit two Chicago-area charities: South Shore Drill Team and Snow City Arts. South Shore Drill Team uses the performing arts to engage inner-city youth throughout their critical teenage years, and Snow City Arts educates and inspires children and youth in hospitals through the arts.
