The UNI Textiles and Apparel Program (TAPP) will host the 20th anniversary Textile and Apparel Design Show displaying student talent. This special anniversary show will not only showcase the work of students currently enrolled in the program, but also feature apparel produced by TAPP alumni working across the country and abroad for well-known fashion labels and industry leaders. Alumni have been invited to this anniversary event. They will be honored on stage and at the reception that follows in the Sabin Hall Ground Floor Atrium. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required; doors open at 6:30 p.m.
All students who were enrolled in classes this academic year in the Textiles and Apparel Program were encouraged to design and construct original garments for the 2012 show “Catwalk to the Big Top”. Designs were chosen for the runway show that demonstrated creativity, appropriate and well executed construction techniques, trend sensitivity, and strong visual messages.
