Students in the Department of Design and Merchandising held their annual Fashion Show on Friday, March 31, at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins.

The show, titled “ASCENT,” showcased 14 senior collections as well as junior design and draping concepts constructed out of recycled war parachutes donated by Aspen Pointe mental health services. Over 40 models who attended a model call in February wore the student designers’ unique collections.

The annual Fashion Show has been single-handedly organized by CSU students under the direction of faculty member Carol Engel-Enright for seven years, and this was the fourth year the Lincoln Center hosted the event.

The Department of Design and Merchandising is part of the College of Health and Human Sciences.
