Annual Design X Fashion Show Set for Tuesday, Feb. 22

Don’t miss Philadelphia University’s 2011 Design X Fashion Show, scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 11:30 a.m. in Downs Hall Auditorium.

Always an exciting and visually stimulating event, Design X, produced by Fashion Industries Association (FIA), features experimental designs constructed from innovative materials that would not typically be used for clothing, such as garbage bags, shoulder pads and videocassette tape. Past shows have featured out-of-the-box designs, such as a party dress made from plastic bottles, a wedding dress made from coffee filters and a dress made of leaves and flowers.

Produced by students in a fashion design problem-solving class, the show pushes them to explore the limits of their creativity and embrace cutting-edge design concepts.

Students tickets are $3 and faculty/staff tickets $5 for this year’s event and will be on sale at the door. T-shirts will also be on sale at the door for $7. For more information, contact FIA president Andrew Van Sant,
