The stage was set for the annual student-run Art to Wear fashion show on April 14, 2010, a collaboration between the College of Textiles and the College of Design. Held in Reynolds Coliseum on NC State’s campus, it is the largest fashion show in the Southeast. Designs are as unpredictable as they are impressive. This year, College of Design students comprised eight of the 12 designers selected by their peers to compete. Student Director of the show, Eleanor Hoffman (AD 2011 / Anni Albers Scholar), won the Audience Choice Award for her collection, “Moon, Dance.” The panel of judges gave their Juror’s Choice award to Kirk Smith, a Food Science major whose fashion line, “College: An Introduction to the Flavors of Education,” played off a number of food brands close to students’ palettes. The event is advised by a number of faculty, including Art + Design Professor Vita Plume who helped students establish the first Art to Wear in 2002.
