See the cutting-edge designs of SUNY Buffalo State fashion students, along with professional Western New York designers, during the annual spring fashion extravaganza, Runway 7.0, on Saturday, May 10, in the Campbell Student Union Social Hall. There will be two shows at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m. that feature the work of more than 20 student designers.
This year’s show is titled “Chrysalis,” and focuses on “the developmental and growth stage that the Fashion and Technology department has emerged from to celebrate. It is the Fashion and Textile Technologies first official year as a stand–‐alone department in our new Technology building!” said Erin Habes, Runway coordinator and Fashion and Textile Technology Department lecturer.
Afternoon show tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students with ID. Evening show general admission tickets are $25; VIP tickets with reserved seating are $100. VIP tickets include access to a private lounge, a swag bag filled with goodies from local merchants, Flying Bison beer, and hors d’oeuvres provided by the Buffalo State chapter of the National Society of Minorities in Hospitality.
