Visitors and students walking through the lobby of Hayward Hall will notice that the space has been transformed into Philadelphia University’s newest exhibit—a collection of work from students in the fashion design program.
The exhibit, called “Imagine,” showcases the work of current and former fashion design students. From the award-winning red dress designs displayed in the annual American Heart Association’s Red Dress Competition and the Philadelphia International Flower Show to the stunning garments from the Philadelphia University Fashion Show, this collection represents the beauty and range exhibited in the creative work of PhilaU students.
“Imagine” is part of The Philadelphia Collection, a 13-day citywide celebration featuring fashion and style events and exhibits throughout the city. In addition, Philly Fashion Week will run from Sept. 20 to 24. More information can be found at ThePhiladelphiaCollection.org.
“This exhibit is a perfect example of the creativity that flourishes here on campus,” said Clara Henry, associate professor and program director of fashion design. “The theme ‘Imagine’ reflects the designers’ ability to realize their potential and to nourish the unlimited possibilities in creative thinking.”
The exhibit will be on display Sept. 14 to 24, and is open to the public Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. The University community can view the exhibit whenever Hayward Hall is open.
