The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and The Drake Hotel's Palm Court are pleased to present the Masters of Design and Post-Baccalaureate 2013 Fashion Show on Wednesday, May 15. Doors open at 7 p.m. for a cocktail hour and the show begins at 8 p.m. Forgoing the traditional runway show in favor of a more dynamic in-the-round presentation, models on elevated platforms will present three to five looks from each of the 12 designers in a display created around the Palm Court fountain. For tickets, visit saicmdespost-baccfashion2013.eventbrite.com. The 12 student designers represent two degrees offered through SAIC’s Fashion, Body and Garment program. Collections by Master of Design students demonstrate the culmination of technical skills and conceptual themes cultivated throughout the curriculum. Designs by Post-Baccalaureate Certificate students expand on one of two themes—sustainability and historical costumes—explored through semester-long studios.
