Student Designer Fashion Show

This live, New York-style runway production staged in the Harley-Davidson Museum’s urban, chic Garage is planned and produced by Mount Mary University fashion students with assistance from Milwaukee's best production professionals. View the Awards and Honors page for more information.

The theme for 2014 is "Pulse." Creativity amplifies the beat of fashion through the concept of design and is recorded with the melodic movement of a needle and thread.  Keeping fashion alive, this is PULSE!
