At the annual Experimental Fashion Event, artists and designers from the MICA Fiber Department’s Multi Media Event class work collaboratively to transform 2640 (St. John’s Church) into a venue for innovative fashion and costume design. During the event, students present their individually crafted garment-based works, pushing the boundaries of fashion and art. The fashion event represents a variety of concepts and skill sets, with work speaking to the performative nature of fashion and the merging of the runway, the stage, and the theater of the streets. The evening will involve more than 200 people, including designers, and their hand-selected models and performers.

UNMARKED aims to capture the energy, excitement and ambition one feels when opportunities seem limitless and when one is no longer bound by convention and rules. For the event, participating designers fabricate new, one-of-a- kind and uncontained identities through art and design. Students will explore non-traditional garments, fabrics, accessories and colors to construct creations that allow the audience to see who they truly are as designers.
Proceeds from the 21st Annual Benefit Fashion Show 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 continues to provide comprehensive diversity programming that supports the students’ academic and social needs.
