About the Annual Fashion Show

Our Annual Fashion Show highlights the outstanding talent of Kent State’s design and merchandising students.

Students submit work (everything from athletic wear to evening gowns) to a panel of industry experts, who decide which collections and looks will be presented on the runway. 

The Annual Fashion Show is a key part of the senior year experience. Our fashion students plan and organize the two-day event every April as an opportunity to showcase and celebrate their achievements.
