Art2Wear 2017

This year marks a sweet 16th birthday for Art2Wear, the annual runway fashion show created by students of the NC State College of Design.

Organized and hosted by the college’s Art + Design department, the show has grown to become the most successful event of its kind in the Southeast, drawing a crowd of thousands each year. Tickets for this year’s fashion show — which takes place April 28 at 7:30 p.m. in Talley Student Union — can be purchased here.

To date, 164 student designers have participated in Art2Wear, putting in a combined 25,600 hours of studio time. Sample some of the extraordinary results below.
