Runway welcomes all SUNY Buffalo State designers to participate in the outdoor fashion show May 7, 2021 and virtual presentation May 14th at 8pm. 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" due to COVID (outdoor & virtual) and subject to change.
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 focus (History Retailored). 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:
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.
Designer category details:
FTT students may enroll in the "Senior Designer Class" (FTT 451) and choose to make a cohesive collection of 4-6 garments. The garments must follow our theme and will be presented in front of our Jury (deadline) for review.
Students can choose to make a cohesive collection of 4 garments. The garments must follow our theme and will be presented in front of our Jury (deadline) for review.
Students can choose to make a single garment or up to a max of 4 unrelated garments. The garments must follow our theme and will be presented in front of our Jury (deadline) for review. These are separate ideas and not a cohesive collection.

If you make it into Runway what can you expect?
Designers that make it into Runway will be included in the show. You will be assigned a stylist from FTT 452 Fashion Show Production class. Your stylist will collaborate with you on selecting models, hair, makeup and accessories that best fit your collection. All Runway designers will have access to professional photos both on and off the catwalk.
