Every college student knows that writing a thesis is the final frontier. For some, it involves hours upon hours in the library, researching on related literature about how events are the best marketing tools for businesses. Whatever it is an aspiring degree earner does, it’ll definitely require some hard work.
The College of St. Benilde’s Fashion Design and Merchandising (FDM) seniors did just that. Last Saturday, the Museum of Contemporary Arts and Design in CSB School Design and the Arts transformed into a runway for “Unbound,” a student fashion show.
Graduating FDM students each showcased three garments in the show. They were given a theme to work on. This year’s was Asian Wedding, and it was interesting to see how they interpreted it. Some reinvented the Japanese kimono into baby doll dresses while others printed photos of Asia onto their fabric.
During the fashion show, I wondered how their young minds could have envisioned something so beautiful, and how they could turn it into something real with their own hands. It wasn’t an overnight project, for sure. Everything they learned in college came into play in designing these three dresses that would either make or break their grade — and possibly, their future. But the FDM students pushed through. If this 90-minute show gave a glimpse of the future of fashion, then no need to worry about how we will all look in the future.
