The Fashion Event at Auburn University is a student-run production showcasing designs by the next generation of fashion designers and merchandisers. The annual Fashion Event, co-sponsored by the College of Human Sciences Department of Consumer and Design Sciences and the Auburn Apparel Merchandising and Design Association, is one of the top college-level productions in the nation.

Each year a group of Apparel students is selected to be in the Fashion Event Planning Class. These students work year-round to plan the event and develop a theme. Our selected theme for this is year is “Emergent.” The foundation of our theme was the idea of “coming out of the woods;” the movement from darkness to light. We believed that this theme was representative of today’s climate because we are symbolizing a year of hope in 2021 and leaving the dark period that was 2020 behind us. This year our show is going virtual due to Covid-19 preventing a large in-person gathering.

We have reconstructed the show by making a film of this year’s runway to feature the student designs. The class has had to adapt by researching and taking inspiration from New York Fashion Week’s structure and other college’s virtual fashion shows to create this virtual experience. The EMERGENT Virtual Experience will be premiered on April 9th at The Plaza in Midtown, Auburn, and available via The CADS & AMDA Fashion Event at Auburn University YouTube Channel and our social media platforms on Facebook and Instagram.
