The School of Fashion will showcase the Spring 2008 collections of recent graduates during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in a fashion show on Saturday, September 8th at 7:00 PM in The Tent in Bryant Park, Sixth Avenue at 41st Street in New York City.
The University promotes its fashion design, textile design and knitwear design graduates with a fashion show of this magnitude to premier the young designers’ debut collections to an audience of local, national and international media; fashion industry, retail and HR executives; recruiters; designers; and society to aid in securing job placement.
“Part of our commitment to the graduate designers is to help launch their careers and have their collections seen by as many industry people as possible,” said Dr. Elisa Stephens, president of the University. “Debuting the collections during New York Fashion Week makes sense as the national and international fashion community is in town at that time.”
“The University has shown annually since September 2005,” added Stephens. “We will increase our graduate profile by showing twice a year beginning with February 2008 New York Fashion Week.”
