“We originally were looking to create a winter collection, which makes you think of muted, dull colors. But, we wanted to show the capabilities of the digital printer, so we changed the colors to vibrant blues and teals,” fashion design student Maria Balestino said.

She and fashion design student Huyen Doan worked closely with a team of graduate surface imaging students to bring their designs to life for the Feb. 7 event. Faculty members Mark Sunderland and Hitoshi Ujiie helped spearhead the design project.
