Now this sounds like a fun class. In FDM 338: 2D/3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) this past Spring semester, the students learned how to create 3D virtual garments and catwalks, fashion flats and illustrations, and t-shirt graphic designs based on their design concepts. The students used a combination of Optitex 3D software and Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
CTAHR’s very own Fashion Design and Merchandising students were featured last week on KHON2 news to promote their upcoming show, Vogue 56, FDM’s 56th Annual Fashion Showcase. “The point of the show is to showcase four collections by our student designers, and the show is also created by our production team,” explained production team lead student Oliva Maguire to KHON news reporter Kamaka Pili. “So it is all student-run and student-created to show off the passion, the hard work, the skill of all of our designers, and really give them that fashion show experience they can take on into the real world post-graduation.”
The UHM Fashion Show is May 1, and you can help support our students by purchasing “Vogue 56” Fashion Show T-shirts and tote bags created by the FDM Fashion Show Production Team. Limited quantities for sale through May 1.
The four collections of original clothing design will get their world premiere on May 1, so for now, the photo and video you see here are just glimpses of what’s to come at “Vogue 56,” the 56th Annual Fashion Show. Set for May 1 on UHM campus, the show will be entirely run by undergrad students of the Fashion Design and Merchandising Program in the Dept. of Family and Consumer Sciences.
New York Fashion Week, the epicenter for America’s new trends in clothing styles and materials, got an extra helping of Aloha last week when Native Hawaiian models, musicians, and dancers graced the runway. The team highlighted one-of-a-kind creations by Ola Hou Designs’ Sharayah Chun-Lai, alum of the Fashion Design and Merchandising program of the Dept. of Family and Consumer Sciences. She is the first kānaka ʻōiwi wahine to accept an invitation from fashion week producer Runway 7.
“I am humbled and honored to be the First Native Hawaiian wahine to accept an invitation from Runway 7 to showcase Ola Hou Design’s uniquely modern Hawaiian vision at Sony Hall and represent Hawai‘i,” Sharayah said last month before jetting off to the Big Apple.
