The Future of Fashion Is Here
On May 19, FIT debuted the Future of Fashion Showcase, featuring nearly 200 senior thesis collections from the class of 2021 Fashion Design BFA program. Traditionally presented in a runway show, the designs can be viewed through digital portfolios inclusive of sketches, photography, and personal statements. Or watch Runway from Home, a fashion video that celebrates the creativity and resilience of students hailing from 42 countries and six continents. The website design was led by Julian Catasus y Brüggemann, Advertising and Digital Design ’20, and the video was edited by Emiliano Sanchez, Film and Media ’20. Check out the looks at!
