ArtWear is the annual juried exhibition of the graduating senior student work in the Fashion Design program in the UNT College of Visual Arts & Design. Each year some 30-40 students compete to have their best creations come down the runway and make their debut into the fashion industry.
The 2019 fashion design seniors have dedicated countless hours day and night to produce their own unique collection to showcase their skills and talent after intense, rigorous training. While this event highlights their creativity and diligence, support from volunteers and other fashion design majors is vital. Dresser volunteers (info sheet), runway models (info sheet), and hair/makeup artists (info sheet) all contribute their time to making ArtWear a success each year.
The ArtWear Fashion Event has a history of over 30 years and has debuted many successful young designers who have gone on to work for companies such as Calvin Klein, Liz Claiborne, Fossil, Theory, Nicole Miller, Betsy Johnson, Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis, Monique Lhuillier, Dillard's, Haggar and JCPenney.
Recognized alumni of the program include Michael Faircloth, Nicolas Villalba, Finley Moll, Shirin Askari, Khanh Nguyen, and Lucy Dang who are all successful independent fashion designers located in the southwest.
