It’s fall and that means it’s time for the department’s Artistry in Fashion event once again. If you’ve attended the event before, you already know it’s one of the best showcases and marketplaces for beautifully crafted clothing and jewelry. If you haven’t yet attended, you must! You won’t want to miss the following designers and dozens more!

The Stylist Show will take place in the Quad Amphitheater at 11:00 a.m. There you’ll see ensembles created from pieces made by these outstanding artists. It’s a great way to get oriented to the marketplace and decide which booths top your must-see list.

Please also stop by our Open House in Building 3, Rooms 253 and 255, and say hello! We will have student garments and other projects on display. Vogue pattern designer Sandra Betzina will be our featured speaker this year. If you sew, you may be wearing one of her designs right now! Take a listen between 12:00 and 3:00 p.m. in Rm. 255.

This fun and inspiring event will take place on Saturday, September 23rd from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the Cañada College campus. The college is located at 4200 Farm Hill Blvd., in Redwood City. Pink bows will guide you to parking and the showcase. A $10 donation is requested for entry. All proceeds benefit student scholarships.
