Project Southernness: Runway Show” Nov. 16 at Judson College

Project Southernness: Runway Show features original fashion designs by THE SOCIETY, a group of Judson College Art Club members. The show will be presented in the Alumnae Auditorium at Judson College, Marion, Ala. on November 16, 2016 at 7 p.m.

The event will serve to create dialogue about the social and historical influences of fashion, and to explore how “Southern” fashion may be informed by social and physical environments, says project organizer Sabrina Adams. “Project Southernness: Runway Show makers will be exploring themes of what it means to be a ‘Southerner’ through examining how our environment transforms our surroundings and ourselves. Our makers will present their ideas of being a ‘Southerner’ through clothing and accessories as art pieces that have either been upcycled or created from scratch.”

The event is a fundraiser for THE SOCIETY. Admission is $2 for the general public, and $1 for students showing their student IDs.

There will be an opportunity to view and discuss pieces made for the collection immediately following the runway show in the Marian Acree Tucker Gallery.

Project Southernness: Runway Show is the first of three fashion events at Judson College that will explore the social and historic impact of fashion. Following events, whose dates are to be announced, are an exhibition of the Judson College Archive’s textile collection and a collective installation on the impact of “fast fashion.”
