About the Fashion Showcase

Since 1968, apparel design students at the University of Minnesota have presented their final projects in the annual Apparel Design Fashion Showcase. Planned by the senior class, the showcase is a rite of passage for its participants. Each year the students’ clothing lines draw hundreds of fashion industry professionals, students, family, and friends to the showcase, creating an opportunity to engage with the larger fashion community.
