The Salt Lake Community College Fashion Institute will hold its annual Project Catwalk this Friday at Library Square Center.
The event is geared toward SLCC students, as well as aspiring Utah high school students, who are interested in design or a career in the fashion industry. The theme for 2018 is “Fashion Upcycle – Drab to Fab.”
Project Catwalk is the opening event for SLCC Fashion Week. Most activities will be held on the first floor, with exception of the fashion show, which will be on the fourth floor in room 401.
Project Catwalk kicks off with brief tours of the Library Square Center from 3 to 3:30 p.m. Following the tours will be design workshops with SLCC faculty and students from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Visitors are welcome to attend the workshops to expand their creativity and knowledge of fashion.
Directly after the workshops, guest speakers will provide insider information on fashion design and merchandising, as well as answer questions, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Don’t miss this opportunity to make important and valuable connections.
A reception to honor all Project Catwalk participants will take place from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Capping the evening, work from design contest finalists will be showcased in the event’s fashion show from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The final judging and awards ceremony will follow shortly after.
Project Catwalk will be held at the Library Square Center, located at 231 East 400 South in Salt Lake City. Parking is available at the back of the building on both the main and lower levels. The day events are free to the public, and the fashion show will have tickets available.
In addition to the Project Catwalk event, the SLCC Fashion Institute will also hold its Senior Student Fashion Show on April 21 as a ticketed event. This event will be held in the Atrium at the South City Campus.
