2018 CCAD Fashion Show Moves to Newly Remodeled Convention Center


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus College of Art & Design is thrilled to announce that hottest runway event in town is moving.

The 2018 CCAD Fashion Show will take place Friday, May 11, 2018, at the newly remodeled Greater Columbus Convention Center.

The new location is a perfect fit for CCAD.

The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority owns the largest collection of local contemporary art, and an interactive LED sculpture envisioned by CCAD Advertising & Graphic Design Associate Professor Matthew Mohr will be the centerpiece to the convention center’s entrance.

“The CCAD Fashion Show showcases the latest work from top student designers, who fuel Columbus’ creative economy. They’re the reason that Columbus is the #3 fashion city in the U.S.,” said Suzanne Cotton, Chair of CCAD’s Fashion Design program. “We couldn’t think of a better place to unveil next year’s fresh designs.”

Officials with the Greater Columbus Convention Center agree.

“We are thrilled to welcome the CCAD Fashion Show to our venue,” said Jennifer B. Davis, Senior Marketing & Communications Manager at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. “Our recently completed $140 million expansion and renovation includes the largest contemporary collection of Franklin County art, which is the perfect setting for the amazingly talented student fashion designers of CCAD to showcase their own artistry in motion.”
