For the first time in its storied history, the Fashion Show will be presented within the installed space of SAIC’s annual Graduate Exhibition, moving the “runway” away from the catwalk and into the Galleries’ open spaces, and creating a vibrant relationship between the work of the School’s graduating artists and designers and fashion students.
