Runway welcomes all SUNY Buffalo State designers to participate in the show April 18, 2020. That includes all grade levels and majors, in addition to the Fashion Textile and Technology students. We have 3 different categories: Single Item, Student Collection and Senior Designer Collection.
Runway has two separate shows (3pm & 8pm), both are identical, but the evening show concludes with an award ceremony.
Tickets are on sale NOW and can be purchased at:runway.buffalostate.edu
Runway Jury & Judging:
Each garment is judged on the construction, suitability of fabric used, creativity, and how well it meets the needs of your stated target market and connection to the theme (VOICES). The Jury rates each look on a scale of 1 -10 with 10 being the highest mark.
The jury is responsible for determining most of the awards given out at Runway including the following:
1. Best Use of Color Award (new)
2. Rising Star Award (new)
3. 3rd Place Senior Collection
4. 2nd Place Senior Collection
5. 1st Place Senior Collection
The Runway Judges will select "Best in Show." The best design is selected according to the degree of innovation, aesthetic qualities, choice of materials and fabric and show performance.
All winners are announced on stage at the end of the show.
