A Fashion Show to Dream About

April 5, 2007

Dreams turn into reality on Saturday, April 28th, with the International Academy of Design and Technology's annual fashion show, Dream 3.

Troy, Mich. - The Fashion Design students at the International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT) in Michigan are busy making final alterations to the garments that will appear in its annual fashion show, Dream 3.

Dream 3 will feature more than 30 student designers and several faculty designers on Saturday, April 28th. All of the student designers were required to submit sketches of their designs in January, draft original patterns, and have their garments completed by the middle of March for prejudging. Each designer in the show was allowed to create up to seven garments, but each piece had to fall into one of the following categories: Art-Rageous”(Wearable Art), Weekend Wear, After 5/Club, Sportswear, Green Fashion (environmentally friendly fabric and fashion), and Black Dress.

"This is our third annual fashion show, and each year the show seems to get bigger and better," said Elaine Ohno, Chairperson of Dream 3 and faculty member at IADT. "It's always amazing to see how creative and professional the students’garments become as they progress through our program."

The fashion show will take place at the Masonic Temple's Crystal Ballroom in Detroit on Saturday, April 28th. Doors open at 7:30pm; the show begins promptly at 8pm. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are now on sale at the IADT campus in Troy (1850 Research Drive).
