Ten senior student designers from O’More showcased fashion collections, their final school project, on Thursday evening at the 2018 O’More Fashion Show inside the Franklin Theatre.
O’More College of Art and Design President Shari Fox opened the evening, noting it would be the final show in Franklin as O’More prepares to merge with Belmont University in the fall.
During the first act, contemporary dance troupe New Dialect performed an interpretative piece in costumes designed by O’More students.
Sophomore and junior students also presented designs created with Naia, a fiber engineered by Kingsport-based Eastman Chemical Company.
But the highlights of the professionally produced show, complete with high-end lighting, sound, modeling, and a runway, were the individual collections.
Each collection began with a video introduction from the student designer, explaining their inspiration behind the design.
Students and their collections are as follows:
- Miranda Bolinger, The Black Garden
- Ashleigh Cain, Revival of the Fittest
- Sydney Duncan, Sacred Nature
- Macy Harmon, A/W 18
- Emily James, La Femme
- Peach Malone, My Best Friend’s Wedding
- Kendra Martin, Ken.drama
- Sarah Grace Mast, In Search of Color
- Kelly Nieser, Supernova
