2018 CCAD Fashion Show

Columbus is a fashion powerhouse. We're the #3 fashion city in the U.S. And that's because of Columbus College of Art & Design, which is proud to present the 2018 CCAD Fashion Show on Friday, May 11, 2018.

This is your opportunity to see and be seen as CCAD’s top student designers showcase their latest looks, all while supporting the future of fashion design education. (Ticket sales and proceeds from the evening fund CCAD scholarships.)

The 2018 CCAD Fashion Show will feature clothes ranging from adaptive childrenswear for kids with disabilities to unisex clothes inspired by insects. (Learn more about the designers here.) Plus, this year’s show has a new location, the newly remodeled Greater Columbus Convention Center.

The 2018 CCAD Fashion Show will take place on Friday, May 11, at the newly remodeled Greater Columbus Convention Center. The new location is a perfect fit for CCAD and the fashion show. The Greater Columbus Convention Center recently completed a $140 million expansion and renovation and the Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority owns the largest collection of local contemporary art.

The success of CCAD’s Fashion Design program is no mystery. Hard work. Raw talent, refined. Student designers with the moxie to make something you’ve never seen before.

This year’s senior class is no different, but their collections are. Buy your tickets today for the opportunity to experience these unique designs, born of a common thread that weaves the story of their time at CCAD — and be the first to see how these designers will leave their imprints on the fashion world.

Join CCAD for the hottest runway event in Columbus! 

All proceeds from the evening benefit the general scholarship fund, which nurtures developing talent across CCAD's 12 majors. Please contact fashionshow@ccad.edu with questions.

Many thanks to our host committee co-chairs Jeff Ramm & Neal Hauschild and Jill & Tim Treece.
