Cornell University has the largest student-run fashion show out of all the Ivy League schools. The event, which is called the Cornell Fashion Collective (CFC), has been running for 27 years, and this year there will be no theme, according to the Cornell Daily Sun.
"We found it confusing to have both a theme and a big anniversary show, so we eliminated the theme element this year," said senior Jaclyn Foster, who is the president of the CFC, to the news source. "This gave the freshman and sophomore designers freedom to design the pieces they wanted, and it made the juniors and seniors happy because they were able to choose their own direction in their lines."
In addition, there was nationwide contest that allowed other fashion designers the chance to showcase their style at the show. The university announced four top students who attended the event and the first place candidate also displayed their outfit in the show.
Due to its popularity, fashion design students can expect keen competition when they enter the field, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, in 2008 the majority of fashion designers were employed in California and New York.
