Since 2005, the School of Fashion has premiered the collections of recent graduates during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. “Part of our commitment to the graduate designers is to help launch their careers and have their collections seen by as many industry professionals as possible,” said Dr. Elisa Stephens, President of the University. “Debuting their collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center is an incredible opportunity, especially since the national and international fashion community are gathered in New York City during that time.” Collections shown throughout the years include those from graduates who studied in the areas of Fashion Design for Women’s Wear, Men’s Wear, and Children’s Wear, as well as Technical Design, Textile Design, Knitwear Design, and Accessory Design.
