MSU students exhibit futuristic fashions
Mississippi State University students in the Apparel, Textiles and Merchandising Program will host a futuristic fashion show, sponsored by the Cotton Incorporated Support Program.
The show will begin at 7 p.m. on Dec. 3 in the Foster Ballroom in the Colvard Student Union on campus. It will feature MSU students’ merchandising projects made of at least 60 percent cotton. General admission is free.
The merchandising and promotion strategies class is putting on the fashion show called “The New Age Traveler.”
Charles Freeman, assistant professor in the School of Human Sciences, oversees the committees creating the fashion show. MSU students are involved in every aspect of the production, including lighting, set design, marketing, promotion and the runway collections.
There will be a fashion merchandising and design competition during the show, in which the winner will receive prizes and opportunities to advance a career in the clothing and textile industry.
