Colorado State University's Department of Design and Merchandising will present its 2010 Student Apparel Design Show "Haute off the Press: Designer's Edition" at 7 p.m., Monday, March 29 and Tuesday, March 30 at the Lory Student Center main ballroom.
This year’s event showcases original designs created by students in the Fall 2009 capstone course in the apparel design and production concentration. Students have developed skills in market research and trend forecasting, design and production processes and the marketing of finished apparel lines, all of which were put to use to create the clothing and entire apparel show.
The student designers have gained experience developing product technical packages and using computer-aided design programs to assist in pattern drafting, garment sketches, textile designs and websites for their final lines.
“Haute off the Press: Designer’s Edition” is sponsored by the Department of Design and Merchandising in the College of Applied Human Sciences and coordinated through the efforts of students enrolled in the apparel design show production and promotion class. The students in this class gain firsthand experience in special events planning and promotion. This year’s show is also supported by generous donations from individuals and businesses from around the community, as well as friends and family.
Tickets are $15 for general admission or $8 with a CSU student ID and are available at CSU’s Campus Box Office in the Lory Student Center at (970) 491-4849. Tickets also can be purchased online through the CSU ticket box at www.csutix.com or at the door on the night of the event.
