FDM Fashion ShowThe Fashion Design & Merchandising Program will present their annual Student Showcase and Runway Fashion Shows at the SIUC Student Center on Thursday, April 24, 2014. The showcase of student projects will be presented from 6:00 to 7:00 PM in the J.W. Corker Lounge and Ballroom C. The runway fashion shows will start at 7:00 PM in Ballroom D.

Nine senior designers will be presenting their final garment collections. The collections present a variety of garment styles, ranging from high fashion evening wear to re-invented grunge-inspired garments. Collections represent the creative talents of Maury Cesair, Sarah Elizabeth Grandt, Alaina Howard, Kara Hunt, Jianuo Li, Shelby Reinhardt, Shakerra Roberts, Morgan Welty, and Kaitlin Wilkerson.
