Come explore where classical meets urbanistic through the love affair of these works with a rebellious twist. This moving exhibit will allow you to fully relish the beauty of all that is ... FASHION!
The Fashion Event is Auburn University’s student led fashion showcase featuring creations by the next generation of fashion designers and merchandisers. The annual Fashion Event, cosponsored by the College of Human Sciences Department of Consumer and Design Sciences and the Auburn Apparel Merchandising and Design Association, is one of the top college-level productions in the nation.
In 2021, the global pandemic forced us to pivot from a LIVE event to producing a video of the entire Fashion Event experience. The students were challenged to creatively reimagine the Fashion Event and develop an engaging film. The theme was Emergent – a dual meaning of emerging out of the darkness of COVID into a new “normal” as well as viewing fashion through the eyes of sustainability towards a future of restoration and growth, bringing forth feelings of hope for 2021-2022 in a transformative presentation of apparel design. Each collection’s runway appearance was shot on location around Auburn, including the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Moore’s Mill Country Club, the Railyard in Opelika and Samford Lawn, to match the tone and theme of the pieces.
