|2016 Fashion Inc. competition|
North Carolina Central University students studying textiles and fashion design will compete in a runway show featuring their original clothing lines at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
The show is sponsored by the Department of Human Sciences’ Textiles and Apparel Program, along with Fashion Inc., a club for NCCU textile and apparel majors.
“Each of us will be showing a line of five garments created within the theme of ‘Reel Fashion,’” said Miranda Partlow, a senior who is majoring in fashion merchandising. "We are being inspired by movies, TV, and video entertainment."
The show, which will take place in McDougald-McLendon Arena, is a way to help students meet academic requirements to create original designs sewn to fit individual models, said Human Sciences Lecturer Beyah Wadeeah. The students’ work will be judged in areas including originality, creativity, fit, color use and quality of construction.
The Department of Human Sciences has VIP tickets available for $30 that include a reception starting at 6 p.m. with food, live entertainment, door prizes and floor seating for the show. General admission tickets are $6 in advance and $8 at the door.
