Future of Fashion at FIT

Feb '10
The Future of Fashion will be revealed when the Fashion Institute of Technology's top graduating design students showcase an array of fashion-forward garments at FIT's annual end-of-year runway show on April 26, 2010. This professionally produced event will present sportswear, special occasion, knitwear, intimate apparel, menswear, and children's wear designed for fall 2010.

Calvin Klein is one of the noted designers who will act as the students' mentors and critics. These designers will visit classrooms throughout the spring semester to critique the students' work and, ultimately, choose the most exceptional garment from each of the six categories for special citation.

Kate Betts, style editor of Time Inc., will be among the judges deciding which garments are outstanding enough to make it to the runway.

The young designers selected for the fashion show also will vie for cash awards from Cotton Incorporated, the lead sponsor of the fashion show. Students who use cotton in 95 percent of their outfits will be eligible to win $2,000 in each of five categories: sportswear, knitwear, intimate apparel, special occasion, and children's wear.

The Future of Fashion will take place in the John E. Reeves Great Hall on the FIT campus at 4:30 pm and again at 7:30 pm. A VIP reception is slated for 6 pm.

FIT, a college of art and design, business and technology of the State University of New York (SUNY), offers 44 majors leading to the AAS, BFA, BS, MA, and MPS degrees. FIT fashion design alumni include Calvin Klein, Norma Kamali, Francisco Costa, Ralph Rucci, Stephen Burrows, Amsale Aberra, John Bartlett, and Nanette Lepore.
