This year is the 10th anniversary of Buffalo State’s Fashion and Textile Technology’s runway show. The theme is Remember Imagine, because to embrace the future, we must remember our past. This show is all about looking back at past Runways that made this show what it is today. The extravagance that is Runway 10 will empower fashion students of yesterday, today, and tomorrow to remember where we have been, and imagine what the future holds.
The designers’ inspiration for this show came from WGSN’s Spring/Summer 2018 trend forecast: Slow Futures, Kinship, Psychotropical, and Tonic. Slow Futures is about remembering the past in order to imagine the future. Kinship is about cultures and collectives, both real and virtual, that forge an increased sense of community. Psychotropic explores an idealized nature of the future. Finally, Tonic analyses the youth of culture influencing every area of the market with rebellion and individuality.

Did you ever think that your used plain white tee could be used for something other than a undershirt or basic shirt? Well… We did!! Runway 9.0 has taken a different turn this year in regards to set design and with doing so we are asking our fellow students, community members, and neighbors to donate any lightly worn plain white tees they no longer use.
We want you all to be amazed at the end product so we are going to keep what we need them for a secret ;). There will be several drop-off locations for you to donate your plain white tees. Renew at 927 Elmwood Ave, Modern Nostalgia Boutique at 1382 Hertel Ave, and the Fashion Department on the Third floor of the Technology Building at Buffalo State College. Don’t miss T-Shirt Tuesday!
