As the summer approaches, the academic calendar at most colleges, universities, and school systems are winding their way down. Many of these schools feature art programs with a variety of media, whose graduating students display their works at year-end shows. The Boston area is no exception, and with the plethora of institutions around the city and beyond, those that have fashion design programs will be hosting shows to illuminate their senior students’ best work. This year, the Fashion Group International of Boston will be celebrating the area’s graduate fashion with a number of fashion shows and exhibitions featuring designs by students at school like Lasell College, Fisher College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and the School of Fashion Design. These shows started April 10th, and will go throughout most of May. For more information on dates of shows, click here.
Fans of fashion and good design are encouraged to attend and support these young creative minds as any one of them could be the next big thing. All of the students are being openly encouraged to try out for the next season of “Project Runway”, which is currently casting for season 8. The most recent season of the popular reality show airing on the Lifetime network, now in its 7th season, featured a 2009 MassArt graduate, Maya Luz, who made it to the top 6 before choosing to leave the competition. If you are a fashion student, freelance designer, or other creatively minded, fashion oriented individual, then you too can try out for the hit reality show, hosted by Heidi Klum. Casting is currently going on, so check out http://www.bunim-murray.com/prcasting or email [email protected] immediately so you don’t miss your chance!
