UA Fashion for Life Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Student fashion designs hit the runway for the 10th annual Fashion for Life on Nov. 24 in The University of Alabama Ferguson Center Ballroom. The show offered designers from the College of Human Environmental Sciences an opportunity to share their collections in front of friends, family and members of the community while raising money for Tuscaloosa DHR Children's Christmas Gift Fund.

"Fashion for Life is the culminating experience for our senior students studying apparel design in the department of clothing, textiles and interior design," said Brian Taylor, instructor of apparel design. "This year we have 16 designers showing, each with a unique sense of style and point of view. The collection development process and fashion show experiences mimic what students will encounter once entering the apparel industry."

In this year's show, designers have been inspired by their own personal experiences in life. Fashions will incorporate sustainability, size inclusiveness, cultural backgrounds and model diversity among other themes.

"I'm extremely proud of their hard work and excited to see their work displayed in an event that also gives back to the community," said Taylor.
