The Student Design Show is the annual highlight of our academic program and serves as a culmination of a year's work for Textile and Apparel students. The apparel items viewed during the show are created by students and approved by jury before being exhibited. The actual planning, promotion, choreography, music and execution of the show is also done entirely by students with the guidance of faculty. Since our program has a distinct focus on product development, the energy and creativity that goes into the annual design show is central to our program's mission!
