The Future of Fashion

This past weekend students from Central Michigan University hit the runway in the 17th annual Threads Fashion Show. Started by Dr. Maureen MacGillivray, a professor at CMU, the show provides a platform for aspiring apparel designers to get exposure for their work and for students seeking experience in the numerous aspects of fashion production including photography, model management, and stage lighting and design.

Every aspect of the show is organized and executed by the students. Jennise Thurston, a former Alpha Industries intern and graduate student at CMU, was one of the student producers. It was her job to oversee the entire event along with the fundraising to make it all a reality. Jennise and students from the school's Fashion Merchandising and Design program created many of the collections that hit the runway. Models were selected from the student body via auditions and then worked with their designers to bring the clothing to life on the day of the big show. Students who participated gained experience in public relations, video production, web design and more. It was a great culmination of the year.

When Jennise reached out to Alpha with the opportunity to be one of the sponsors of this year's show it was a perfect fit. Not only did we support one of our own, but we were able to help inspire fashion designers of the future. Our award was for Best Collection and the winners were Nikki Allen, Sydney Newsome, and Kathryn Sell. Congrats to all three designers!

Get to know Jennise in the Threads Producers video and take a look at collections winners' designs on the runway. Then check out designs from all the categories at the Treads Fashion Show.
