ABOUT

Buffalo State College’s Fashion and Textile Technology department welcomes you to view the best work of our student designers – April 30, 2022. Watch the hottest trends go down the runway with looks from our Spring/Summer ’22 student collections.

 

Our RUNWAY team is excited to bring our show back (in-person) to the Sports Arena for Buffalo State’s 150th anniversary celebration this year. We have missed you and your support! Our Black Fashion Scholarship was established in 2021, and we are happy to announce that we have successfully raised $7,500 and will be awarding our first Black Fashion Scholarship at this year’s fashion show. We need YOUR help to endow this scholarship, so please consider donating today! 

 
This year’s RUNWAY focus is Push for Progress and looks to those who are building a new foundation for inclusivity in the fashion industry, the forward-thinkers, the leaders that are creating change. As fashion designer Prabal Gurung states, “Revolutions always begin fragmented. Then, when united, the real change happens, and history gets made.” RUNWAY brings these conversations to life on and off the stage, highlighting designers, organizations, and causes that are pushing for progress.

 

RUNWAY is partnering with Thrift 2 Fight, an organization that mobilizes fashion by funding racial justice work, climate activism, and queer liberation with the profits of a dynamic thrifting movement. Support our Thrift 2 Fight X Runway Pop-up event at this year’s show. Proceeds from the thrift sales will be donated to Buffalo Community Fridge, WNY Peace Center and the Center 4 Self Advocacy.
