Jury Show Information: We strongly encourage you to enter the jury show. It is a chance to win recognition for your work and to receive valuable feedback from industry professionals. To enter the jury show, you must be a student within the Fashion Studies program and submit at least 3 original garments/looks that you have designed, patterned, and sewn. The garment you enter should be your best work. The judges will be scoring your work based on their impressions of the creativity, marketability and construction of the pieces. The judges will have the opportunity to examine garments before and during the jury show.
Main Show Information: Any Fashion Design student can present a garment in the main show. It must be a garment you have sewn yourself, from your own pattern or a commercial pattern. You need to submit 1 Designer Info Sheet (available in SRC1009) and a selfie for the program. You may submit multiple garments. Each Garment must be accompanied by a Garment Information Sheet (available in SRC1009). In rare cases, not all garments will be sown. Garments that do not meet the minimum standards of the department (below) will not be shown.
