Runway will be held in the Campbell Social hall on Saturday April 25, 2015. This event is the highlight of the year in the fashion department and many students and faculty put a lot of work into this event each year to make it successful. All proceeds from this event fund a department scholarship for FTT students.
The Fashion and Textile Technology Department has an industry based curriculum which means that successful executives from the fashion industry are invited to serve as our jury members and judges. The Jury of Selection determines what garments will be included in the spring fashion show based on the the construction, suitability of fabric used, creativity and how well it meets the needs of your stated target market. Each jury member individually determines how he/she with weigh each criteria and all scores are added together to determine which garments are included in the show line up.
Each jury member has a different role in the fashion industry, therefore their focus will be different when they view the submitted garments. Someone buying for retail may look at the marketability aspect more closely, another juror may feel fabrication or workmanship is most important. Therefore you must take all aspects into consideration when designing/assembling/submitting your garment(s). If you are using a garment made in class, you should be aware that the criteria used for judging is not the same as is used to determine a grade. You may very well receive a high grade in a class and not make it through the jury process or vice versa.
Things to know about the fashion show are included in the link below. Please read all sections so that you are thoroughly informed of all areas!
