San Francisco State University's Apparel Design & Merchandising program is pleased to present RUNWAY 2022 BLOOM: Turning a New Leaf. After two years of staying at home, we are excited to host the first live, back-in-person fashion show since the pandemic. More than 90 innovative designs will be showcased on the runway by SF State’s very own design seniors. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to witness the future of fashion!

SF State Apparel Design & Merchandising students, in collaboration with the Fashion Network Association and SF State's Disability Programs and Resource Center, announces the 27th annual student fashion show RUNWAY. One of our senior designers, Claire Gonsalves, has created a collection “inspired by female exotic dancers,” and her goal is to “encapsulate the beauty, thrill, and freedom without society's preconceived judgment.” Overall, our mission is to exemplify diversity, equity and inclusivity in the fashion realm without compromising art and creativity. On the runway, senior designers will showcase their final collections, a culmination of everything they have learned during their time at SF State. In addition, junior designers are crafting unique designs for disability models, emphasizing that quality fashion can cater to anyone and everyone! Following years of hardship that the pandemic created, we are now seeing designers push limits of their creativity to represent individuals and their fashionable expression.

The event will take place on Friday, May 6 on the SF State campus at Cesar Chavez Quad (Malcolm X Plaza). The show will start at 12 p.m. with an after-party at the Seven Hills Conference Center, Nob Hill Room. The show is
completely FREE, no ticket required. (all COVID-19 protocols must be followed to be present on campus.)
