Featuring garments by student designers and local professionals, the MODA Fashion Show is an annual celebration of arts and fashion at UChicago. Almost 200 students are directly involved in producing the event, which drew 1,200 attendees to Union Station from UChicago and local communities in 2014. The event includes a pre-show cocktail reception, a musical performance, live entertainment, a runway show, and a complimentary after-party at a chic downtown location.
The Fashion Show is MODA's signature event, one of the largest student events, and a staple of the UChicago calendar. The event showcases student designs from our Designer Boot Camp Program and partnership with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The event doubles as the launch for the spring issue of MODA Magazine, which features student designers, models, writers, photographers, stylists, and editors. Our team of student models celebrates the diversity of our student body. Finally, the Show gives students hands-on experience at the intersection of arts and business, and offers the city a lesser-known side of UChicago.
Our Winter 2017 Fashion Show, MODA XIII will take place on Friday, February 24th, from 8-10 p.m., at The Drake. This will be our biggest fashion show yet! Tickets will be on sale soon.
