DONROSE: Annual Benefit Fashion Show

MICA Community Show: Friday, April 8, 9pm
General Public Show: Saturday, April 9, 8pm

DONROSE is about breaking the norms. The world is a constantly evolving and changing place, and the students' goal is to demonstrate those notions in this year's fashion show. The designers want to appeal to all senses, traveling the middle path between black and white. It is that middle ground that people see all colors and possibilities.
