Spring Fashion Show
April 8, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
MICA presents Hueman, the 24th Annual Benefit Fashion Show, a runway-style showcase of student-designed fashions, with a range of high-concept and ready-to-wear designs that question color in society.
The show will take place on Friday, April 7, 9 pm, and Saturday, April 8, 8 pm, in Falvey Hall, 1301 W. Mt. Royal Ave.
Organized by MICA students Ashley Lian (director) and Briana Arrington (assistant director), Hueman features 20 individual fashion lines created by 26 designers representing the College’s Fiber, Painting, General Fine Arts, Graphic Design and Interactive Arts programs, among others.
The show was conceived to highlight the ways in which color affects our perception of the world and each other. Each of the designers contributes to this conversation with fashions that encourage viewers to reflect on color’s impact on society, particularly on ideas of race, gender, sexuality and emotion.
“I think Hueman is a culmination of the right ideas at the right time,” said Lian. “Briana and I knew we wanted to focus on color as early as last year, and given the current political climate, I think it’s extremely important for audience members to think about their own internal biases and associations that are based on color and how they relate to identity, clothing and art.”
