Means to Make
Art2Wear, a runway show organized by students in the College of Design, is a time-consuming endeavor with significant financial commitments. Increased private support could help more students to take part.
For 15 years, the annual Art2Wear fashion show has been challenging young designers at NC State to create wearable art and put it in front of a passionate audience. Watch how the 2016 show unfolded.
From Studio to Stage

Art2Wear: More Than a Fashion Show
At Art2Wear, the annual show of fashions from students in the College of Design and the College of Textiles, students get rare exposure to an audience of fans and potential employers.
For 12 years, Art2Wear has brought design and textiles students' fashion visions to life. It's a nine-month effort, but to the designers it's a labor of love.

How Great They Art
NC State's 10th annual Art to Wear fashion show once again brought together some of the most creative minds on campus to show the latest in art and design. In an inspired show, student designers displayed a range of fashion - from haute couture to mass-market ready apparel.
Where Art They Now
In 2004 and 2005, Ashley Newsome was just another student rushing to put last-minute touches on her showcased collections for NC State's annual Art to Wear fashion show. Today, Newsome owns her own sustainable fashion supply and custom clothing design and production studio.
