Color is an integral part of the way we perceive the world. It leaves lasting impressions on the way we act and feel. Clothing, like color, has the power to affect the way we view others through structure, material and silhouette. An inseparable connection between the two creates dynamic conversations about how we understand each other.
Hueman, the 24th Annual Benefit Fashion Show, is a showcase of some of these conversations. With 20 lines made by 26 designers, it's an event that presents the influential nature of color on the body, encouraging the audience to reflect on color's impact on society, incorporating ideas such as race, gender, sexuality, and emotion.
Proceeds of this event will help support students involved in diversity programming and scholarly pursuits through the Office of Diversity and Intercultural Development, the main sponsor of the show. This event is one of many ways MICA continues to provide comprehensive diversity programming that supports students' academic and social needs. The Annual Benefit Fashion Show brings the MICA community together to celebrate amazing work created by talented artists and designers.
