Apparel Design Senior Fashion Showcase

Models wearing Warda Moosa's line walk the runway at the 2020 Apparel Design Showcase.

2023 — DAWN

In the wake of the pandemic, social turmoil, and hardships, a collective of young designers stand before you, emerging from the darkness and entering into a new era: DAWN. These emerging designers are the beginning of a new generation of creatives prepared to solve the challenges before them while seeking beauty and creating art. The Apparel Design Senior Class of 2023 highlights twenty individuals, each with an illuminating and empowering perspective on the future of fashion. The work showcased on the runway and off ranges from adaptable garments to the exploration of past and present aesthetics. DAWN is a testament to resilience and commitment to evoking change.

Join these designers in celebrating a new era with an evening of fashion and evolution. The event will include a runway and exhibition reception.

Meet the Class of 2023
