April 7, 2014, Newton, MA—Join us to experience Exposed, Mount Ida College School of Design’s annual Fashion Show, produced by students from the Fashion Design, Fashion Merchandising & Marketing and Graphic Design programs, on Saturday, May 3 at 5:30 p.m. at Royale Nightclub on 279 Tremont Street in Boston. Ticket information available at http://www.mountida.edu/2014-fashion-show. Our Fashion Show event is open to the Mount Ida Community and the general public.
“This year’s Fashion Show is a creative tour-de-force of three School of Design programs,” said Kathleen Potter, Fashion Merchandising & Marketing Professor. She continued, “On the runway, you will see the culmination of work from our fashion design students. While behind the scenes, our graphic design and fashion merchandising and marketing students have been focused on everything from creative, marketing and communications to event planning of this much-anticipated show.”
Mount Ida welcomes and is very proud to present our panel of respected and accomplished fashion industry experts who will judge our fashion design students’ work on the runway: Kathy Benharris, Fashion Show Producer; Jay Calderín, Founder and Executive Director of Boston Fashion Week; David Josef, local Fashion Designer; and Yolanda Cellucci, local Fashion Designer and icon. Our judges will assess creativity, uniqueness, originality, and quality of the garments featured in the Exposed Fashion Show.
We are also thrilled to introduce a new venue for our fashion show, Royale Nightclub, in the heart of Boston’s theatre district. The new location offers real-world, big city excitement and energy for our students’ Fashion Show production.
