Ex Tempore: Annual Benefit Fashion Show

Ex Tempore showcases garments that link styles and trends across generations.

Friday, April 12, 9 p.m. (MICA Community/Media Preview) Saturday, April 13, 8 p.m. (General Public)

As vintage fashions and ideas influence new and dynamic styles, clothing is reborn. By placing their creative mark on this moment, these designers are both redefining and influencing the wearable across time.

After the show, audience members are invited to mix and mingle with the designers and view an exhibition of fashion pictorials of the students' designs captured by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks '00 (illustration). Now in its 20th year, proceeds from the Annual Benefit Fashion Show continue to help support students involved in diversity programming and scholarly pursuits through the Office of Diversity & Intercultural Development, which sponsors the show. The event is one of many ways MICA provides comprehensive diversity programming to support the academic and social needs of all the College's students


Roz Carlos, Christy Chong, Naomi Davidoff, Lizzy Farley, Karen Feliz, Michelle Kim and Christina Knebel, Demi King, Jordan Matthews, Natovian McLeod and Ronesha Davis, Luis Rivas, and Cindy Stauffer and Miki Flores. Graphic Designers: JT Cobell, Andrew Copeland and Alena Jaffe.
