Distortion: 43rd annual senior fashion show Saturday, February 19, 2011

Distortion, the 2011 annual fashion show, features the work of 18 senior apparel design students in a runway event that incorporates a wide variety of styles and inspirations ranging from men’s wear to women’s wear, work wear to sportswear, and high fashion to the stylishly affordable, with many surprising influences. The diversity and magnitude of the apparel design senior class promises an evening that is unexpectedly alluring, so forget what you know about fashion and prepare for your idea of the runway to be enjoyably distorted. A standing exhibition of work by the sophomore class and pre-runway show from the junior class will also be included.

There are two evening shows (5 pm and 8 pm) on Saturday, February 19, 2011 in Rapson Hall. Tickets are available online or on site the day of the show. Learn more about the event and the designers at
