We are seeking to raise $5000 to fund this year's show. We need staging and drapery, additional runway pallets, and lighting and sound equipment. Your contribution will help create a better show for this year's designers, models, and audience, and will benefit future students as well.

From our humble beginnings of 11 students in 2010, more than 100 girls and boys have graced our runway. This year's show is a celebration of the elements of design. From ancient philosophical theory to modern necessity, the elements of design are the tools we use to create our wardrobe. The Elements of Fashion illustrates how we use these tools to create our own uniqueness.
