Students including Anntionette Davis, a junior in fashion design, will be presenting chic street fashion, Deja Wright, a sophomore in fashion design, will be showcasing garments with a rebellious style and Elly Abels, a junior in fashion design who will be showing pieces inspired by the 60s.

In addition to Kadajza Griffin, a sophomore in fashion design who created garments that blend streetwear with glamour, Kenah Fuller, a senior in fashion design, made one-of-a-kind designs using luxury materials and Naomi Hollar, a freshman in fashion design who focuses on sustainable fashion.

Karen Bravo from the Art Institute of Austin’s fashion faculty said in a statement: “This show is an end-of-term celebration of the students' hard work and an opportunity for them to show off what they have learned during this term.

“Our students in the pattern making/draping and construction courses have learned the basics of pattern making, draping, and construction over ten weeks, making a basic bodice, pencil skirt, dresses, and pants.

“In addition to a bias-cut dress inspired by French designer Madeleine Vionnet. The audience will see the student's interpretations of what they learned this term, and their runway show is highly anticipated."
