Wedding dresses, fairy tale inspiration, Goth overtones, red feather boas, creative beer can recycling, and much more. The 36th Annual WSU Mom’s Weekend Fashion Show, titled Emerge, had innovation and cutting-edge clothing for everyone.
Fifteen seniors presented collections that they designed and made, showcasing the knowledge they’ve acquired in their time at the university.
“The work these women put into their collections is impressive and the results are truly amazing,” said Shanna Hiscock, Academic Coordinator in the Department of AMDT who directed the Fashion Show. “It takes so much effort to put on a show like this, from the designers to the models to the volunteer crew who put in so much time. They all came together to create an amazing showcase for our department.”
