CCAD's Senior Fashion Show is May 13, 2011

As we survive our first snow fall of the year, May and CCAD’s annual senior fashion show fundraiser seem a million years away. But, the fact is, for the student designers, faculty, staff and everyone else involved in this event, work has been underway for months—for us, May and the 2011 CCAD Fashion Show is just around the corner.

Once again this blog will serve as a backstage pass to all things CCAD Fashion Show, but this year I am focusing on the student designers. Over the months I’ll have a chance to get to know them better, learn more about their approach to design, their process, and their inspiration.

Before we take a closer look at the designers, however, I have a few fun things to share.

  1. This year’s show theme is Masters of Design, with each designer pulling inspiration from one of fashion’s greats—and these muses range from Betsy Johnson to Coco Chanel.
  2. The event is moving from an elegant afternoon brunch and runway show to a high-octane night-time runway extravaganza. That means the beats don’t stop—after ticket holders have been energized and inspired by our designers they’ll take the party from the runway tent to the dance floor.
  3. Finally, we’ve changed the show date to coincide with the opening of CCAD’s Annual Student Exhibition and end-of-year celebrations. Need a break from the post-show party?—cross the street and see high-caliber art & design from each of our nine majors. Check in to the auditorium for film screenings. It will all be happening on CCAD’s campus May 13.

You can wander through the archives of this blog to read about last year. It will give you a taste of what to expect, but just a taste. The changes in store for the 2011 event ensure it will be better than ever.

Coming next: Intern Aadam attended the model tryouts earlier this fall—on Dec. 16 read all about the best assignment an intern could get. Come back in January and find out why getting your model is the first step to creating your collection, and the answer to questions like what exactly is “blocking,” and why on Project Runway, do the designers put tape on the dress forms?

Feb. 1, check out the fashion show event page for a special advance-purchase ticket offer (buy early and save).
