The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) presents Catalyst, the 26th Annual Benefit Fashion Show, a runway-style showcase of student-designed fashion that will take place at 9 p.m. Friday, April 12 and at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 13 in Falvey Hall in MICA’s Brown Center, 1301 W. Mount Royal Ave.
After a quarter of a century, the MICA Annual Benefit Fashion Show has entered a new era: fashion in the age of innovation. The show highlights designers who are evolving beyond self-serving behavior to active consciousness, who are forward thinking and record this change through their garments and designs. Throughout history, fashion has marked societal, political, economic and technological development — even the Annual Benefit Fashion Show was established to create and celebrate growth in the diversity within MICA.
This year, each of the collections will mark its own history. Through a minimum of eight to twelve full looks, designers have created an innovative collection that speaks to class, activism, sustainability, politics, technology, diversity or other current themes that will be an impetus for change.
This year's shows are in Falvey Hall, Brown Center:
April 12 at 9 pm
General Admission $20 | Staff $12 | Students $7
April 13 at 8 pm
