TCU’s vogue merchandising program is presenting “FORT WORTH FASHION” at Fort Value Trend Week on Thursday.
The chance provides vogue college students a peek into trade operations.
“I am thrilled to volunteer and be involved in Fort Worth Fashion Week because I get to gain a hands-on experience on what it’s like working in the industry,” stated Kendall Downes, junior vogue merchandising main.
Hannah Potter, additionally a junior vogue merchandising main, is worked up to see a mock-up of her designs on show throughout FWFW.
“This Thursday, I will be attending a Fort Worth Fashion Week event featuring my NASCAR-inspired collection I completed last spring for Leslie Browning-Samoni’s Fashion Drawing Class,” stated Potter. “I will forever be grateful for the memories and knowledge TCU fashion merchandising has given me throughout the years.”
The free occasion is hosted by Justin Anderson, Neeley College of Enterprise alumnus, at South Major Micro Park. It’ll embody an afterparty with stay music and refreshments.
The collections will showcase “fashion merchandising students’ creative work representative of what Fort Worth Fashion means to them and reflecting their interpretation of fashion as art,” Anderson stated.
Fort Value Trend Week is diversifying its collections this yr, stated FWFW Inventive Director Phillip Maximilian.
“We are incorporating more fashion shows and styles into our events,” stated Maximilian. “We have fashion shows every day of the week, from couture to vintage, western, sustainable, athleisure, and menswear. We also incorporated more designers, clothing brands, retailers, models, fashion photographers, and fashion overall.”
FWFW kicked off its second week of occasions on Monday, Sept. 19.
