Fashion design and visual merchandising majors will present this year's fashion show and senior work collection at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, May 1, in the Barfield Drawing Room in the Bill Daniel Student Union Center on the Baylor campus.

The theme of the show, "Going Vogue: A Reflection of Time," was created by the visual merchandising students. Although the theme is based on current events, designers will explore past, present and future styles.

The event is part of the visual merchandising class and a showcase for senior students.

"There will be about 110 garments, and the models are Baylor students," said Rochelle Brunson, professor of visual merchandising at Baylor.

Nine seniors will show five to six garments each and all will be original creations.

The show will feature five segments swim wear, business wear, coats and dresses, futuristic wear for the year 3010, and fabric print.

"Baylor has a printer that uses nano-ink, so the students had to design their own fabric and then print it off onto cloth material," Brunson said.

Fashion merchandising students are responsible for the public relations, ticket sales, commentary, programs and training of models. Fashion design students provide the garments that are shown.

"It's a good experience, because most of them want to be buyers or visual merchandisers, so planning and producing everything is good for them," Brunson said.

Tickets are $10 for the 2 p.m. show, $15 for the 7 p.m. show and are on sale in the SUB.
