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. 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 story 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 class of seniors is no different, but their collections are. Buy your tickets today see how this class of students' unique outlooks weave together to tell the story of their time here — and how these designers plan to leave their signatures in the fashion world after they leave.

Join CCAD for the hottest runway event in Columbus! 

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