Philadelphia, PA – Enjoy an evening of glitz and glamour from the comfort of your home with Moore College of Art & Design’s S/S 2021 Fashion Show! Fashion Design seniors will present their original designs and unique looks in a virtual YouTube Premiere format, scheduled to launch online Friday, May 21, 2021, at 8 pm at moore.edu/2021FashionShow. This fabulous event is FREE to view.
“Fashion is by far the most accessible design discipline, touching us all,” said Cecelia Fitzgibbon, president of Moore College of Art & Design. “The students’ work pushes the boundaries between utility and creativity, asking us to think of deeper questions than we usually do: What choices did the designer make? What part is social commentary and in what place and time can this design fit with external circumstance? Fashion as design helps us to see the world we live in, and often differently than we saw it before.”
The students will reveal distinctive fashion collections that display their individuality, style and artisanal skills through their beautifully crafted clothing. Nasheli Ortiz-González, chair of the Fashion Design department, said viewers will see fine details and use of texture, innovative use of laser-cut plexiglass, technical elements, and garments that explore everything from trauma to cultural heritage.
"There is a lot of personality in these collections,” said Ortiz-González. “The students were able to take their themes and concepts and minimize them to make it very digestible for the viewer. That was very important to this group.”
Moore’s S/S 2021 Fashion Show is sponsored by Century 21 Stores.
