IADT logoSAN ANTONIO (March 26, 2012) – The International Academy of Design and Technology’s (IADT) top design students will showcase their fashions and graphic art at the fifth annual IMAGINE Fashion Runway Event and Art Show. The event will be held on Thursday, April 5, at 6:30 p.m. at the Sunset Station in Depot One (1174 E. Commerce, 78205).

KMF’s mission is to raise awareness in our community on the impact of domestic violence. The foundation is committed to strengthening individuals through education, compassion and courage and serving as a resource for those dealing with the physical, emotional and mental harm domestic violence can yield.

“IMAGINE signifies progress and opportunity for the creative minds of our students,” said IADT-San Antonio Campus Director Gilbert DeLeon. “This is our fifth year celebrating our school’s design talents in San Antonio, and because of their work, we have seen growth in these industries in San Antonio, regionally and beyond.”
