Get your tickets now for International Academy of Design & Technology-Orlando's 6th annual IMAGINE fashion show! The event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes (4012 Central Florida Parkway, Orlando). The V.I.P. event starts at 6 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m. The fashion presentation starts at 7.30 p.m.
This year's designs, created and constructed by students pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design and Merchandising, are a celebration of futuristic Steampunk fashions for the fall/winter 2012/13 season. Steampunk infuses the elegance of the Victorian era with a futuristic interpretation.
In addition to creating garments for the event, students will also compete in a designer challenge judged by guest industry professionals. The three-week long competition requires students to test their creativity while incorporating the theme of the event. This year’s designer challenge consists of students working in groups to create Steampunk-inspired children’s clothing that will be modeled by children who are currently battling or have overcome cancer.
IMAGINE 2012 has partnered with the charity Runway To Hope, which provides direct support to the children and families in the Central Florida community through research, education, technology and family assistance. Seeing the finished garments on children who understand firsthand the impact cancer has on their young lives will be a meaningful end to a fashionable night.
