This Saturday, April 21, students can make their way to Lang Hall Auditorium to see the UNI Textiles and Apparel Program (TAPP) students’ presentation of Catwalk 26. The event starts at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

The theme of this year’s event is “UNI Fashion Week,” which plays off of New York Fashion Week.

The first section will be called “The Streets” and is based off people walking around outside on their way to shows.

The next section will be called “The Dress Room” and is inspired by the fashion week models getting ready in the dressing room before the show starts. The final section will be “The Runway” and acts as the runway show that would be seen during Fashion Week.

“Students can expect to see clothing designs made by students form the Textiles and Apparel Program from all different levels of experience,” said Jordan Caruso, executive director of the show and a senior at UNI.

The show will have 25 designers with about 70 designs being showcased.

Students can expect to see pieces either patterned and sewn completely by the student and pieces made by non-traditional construction in a creative design class.

The planning for the show starts at the beginning of the spring semester with the Fashion Promotion class, according to Caruso. The class then divides into groups for promotion, stage and models to begin creating that show based on the theme.

To get involved, students have to sign up for the Fashion Promotion class, which is offered in the spring semester of every year.

“This is a great event for everyone to come see all of the hard work that the Textiles and Apparels students have done through the past school year,” Caruso said.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and it is advised to arrive early.
