Jury 2017

The jury meets three weeks before the show to view the garments and determine which ones will be included in the show. They base their decisions on creativity, suitability of fabrics and findings, quality and theme. In 2016 the acceptance rate was 90 percent, the highest we have had in five years. The senior collection and student collection awards are determined based on the scores received during the jury process.
