POD teens from Central Falls High School, Davies Career and Technical High School and Woonsocket High School attended the apparel show. Congratulations to POD Alum, Carmela Wilkins, who was a model in the show!
Every spring RISDʼs Apparel Design students have an opportunity to drape, zipper and buckle their creations onto fabulous looking models, offering the perfect foil for showing the clothing to an admiring public. This yearʼs runway show will take place for an enthusiastic audience of RISD people and community members it is the first and best chance to get an up-close view of the fashion tastemakers and trendsetters of the future.
Work for each Collection is chosen by a panel of guest critics and represents specific assignments given to sophomores, juniors and seniors in Apparel Design. Seniors display their thesis projects — unified bodies of work that showcase professional-grade conceptual and technical skills; juniors focus on knitwear projects and coat collections; sophomore “innovatives" projects are created from nontraditional materials.
