Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is a internationally prominent college of design, fashion, art, communications, and business. Fit's stated mission is to prepare students for professional excellence in design and business. The teaching staff at FIT assists in the student's in developing innovative design and strategic business solutions that will create personal and professional opportunity. This effort focuses on creativity and experimentation that is the foundation for a successful design.
This year, about 25 student designers will have their creation highlighted in this runway event.
Stephanie Ali, president and Veronica Apsan, vice president of the Art and Fashion Design Club will serve as master of ceremonies for the late afternoon show. This year's theme is Kabuki meets La Belle Époque; which corresponds to the college's desire for students to cross traditional boundaries of both geography and disciplines.
Perhaps a unique aspect of the show is that it produced solely by students and faculty of the Art and Fashion Programs. Every facet of the show from Poster design to the choreography of the models is orchestrated by members of the Art and Fashion Design Club.
Two FIT mentors and a Brazilian Fashion Designer will serve as judges:
Legendary designer George Simonton a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Known for using fabulous fabrics, sophisticated silhouettes, and distinctive details, and
Fashion Designer and Full-Time Professor and the Head Designer/Owner at Christopher Uvenio Collezioni, and author of the cutting edge and fashionable, christopheruveniodesign.blogspot.com; and
