Collaboration by Design: How Our Students Get Fashion Show Experience

Cosmetology students from Minnesota School of Cosmetology teamed up with apparel design students from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities by volunteering as hair/makeup artists for the College of Design’s 45th Annual Apparel Design Senior Fashion Show. The name of this year’s show was “Flux” which showcased the final works of fashion by the College of Design’s senior students and the emerging work of the sophomores and juniors.

MSC Instructor, Chris Prieve, volunteers with this project annually. She expressed, “We, the students of MSC, are lucky to help out the sophomores and juniors. Our students give hairstyles and make-up applications to the models and the designers. It’s so much fun to see our students work as they will once they are professionals. It’s a great learning curve for our students to fulfill the designers’ needs of hairstyle and make-up effects that show off the clothing design. The students always thank me for bringing them to this event.”

MSC student Vantha Pos also had a great experience at the fashion show.  “I had a great time! I loved every moment of it. The models were very pretty and kind. Thanks to Ms. Cris for letting me be a part of it. It was a good experience for me because I didn’t know I could do all that.”

Minnesota School of Cosmetology is enthusiastic about partnering with other colleges to share artistic talents and introduce our students to significant fashion show experiences.
