MTSU Fashion Promotion Students to Display ‘Jet Set’ Wardrobe for Spring

MURFREESBORO—“Bon Voyage!” is the theme of MTSU’s spring 2012 Student Design Fashion Show slated for 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in the Tennessee Room of the James Union Building.

Dr. Jasmin Kwon, assistant professor in the Department of Human Sciences, says this cruise/resort collection created by students in her fashion promotion class, TXMD 3110, will include vacation-ready fashions inspired by dreams of “the lifestyle of traveling from one stylish or exotic place to another via private aircraft.”

Entries will be divided into three categories: “Jetsetter,” for luxury travel wear; “Stylish Splash,” for beachwear and sportswear; and “Summer Nights,” for glamorous evening gowns appropriate for cruises and/or resorts.

Students must submit their designs March 26-29 with a final deadline of 6 p.m., Thursday, March 29, in Room 104 of the Ellington Health Sciences Building. Designers are limited to a maximum of five garment entries per person.

The winners will receive prizes and scholarships sponsored by Singer Sewing Company, the MTSU student organization Fashion & Design Students and the MTSU Textiles, Merchandising and Design Program.

General admission is $15, and VIP admission is $30. Seating will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The Avenue Murfreesboro and MTSU Student Programming are sponsors for this event. For more information, contact Kwon at 615-904-8340 or
