Each spring, after months of conceptual development, experimentation and meticulous construction, Apparel Design majors showcase their one-of-a-kind creations at a popular runway show called Collection. Held at the Providence Performing Arts Center this year, the fast-paced live show offers audiences a sneak peak at the fashion tastemakers and trendsetters of the future.

The work shown in each year’s Collection is juried by a panel of guest critics—professional designers who carefully review and discuss the work together, give students critical feedback and select the best garments for the one-day show. Guest critics this year are:

o    Derek Lam, designer/owner, Derek Lam
o    Anne Slowey, Fashion News Director at ELLE
o    Neil Gilks, senior projects manager, Council of Fashion Designers of America [CFDA]
o    Simon Spurr designer and owner of Simon Spurr

Designs by seniors are selected from their year-long thesis collections—unified bodies of work that showcase professional-grade conceptual and technical skills; for juniors selections are made from their men’s or women’s tailored jacket looks and cut/sew knitwear projects; and sophomore work is selected from their textiles-collaborative print projects, as well as from the Re-Innovatives challenge—to construct a wearable piece out of recycled materials other than fabric.
