The annual Threads Fashion Show, “Alter Egos of Fashion,” gives UNCG student designers a chance to interpret what “alter ego” means to them. The show starts at 8 p.m. Friday, March 30, at The Empire Room, 203 South Elm Street, Greensboro.
Threads, a group of Consumer Apparel and Retail Studies (CARS) students, has teamed up with VF Corporation to sponsor the show. During the show, VF will feature jeans designed by CARS student Song Anh Nyguen, winner of Wrangler’s national Next Blue design competition.
In a new development, a section of this year’s show will spotlight capsule collections from upper-level design students.
“This new format works as a platform for design students to build their portfolio and showcase their designs,” says Threads President Victoria Kim. “That has never been available before, within Threads or the university.”
