Historical note

The Iowa State University Textiles and Clothing Fashion Show is an annual event first held in 1982. The fashion show highlights student designs and demonstrates the creativity of students in the Apparel, Merchandising, Design, and Production Program (AMDP) of the Department of Apparel, Educational Studies, and Hospitality Management (AESHM) at Iowa State. Students must be enrolled in AESHM 271/TC 471: Public Relations and Events Management in order to produce and promote the show. Funds for the production are raised by ticket sales and through other fundraising events held throughout the year.

Judges for the show are usually Iowa State graduates of the apparel design program and fashion experts from around the Midwest. Each year, one or two guest designers from across the country are also invited to showcase their designs during the show.

The fashion show grew out of the annual style show presented by the Textiles and Clothing Club during VEISHEA. The 1983 production was the first to be called the Fashion Show and it was held during VEISHEA on the steps of MacKay Hall. The event was eventually moved to Fisher Theater where it was held until 2004. By that time, the show was regularly selling out the 450-seat facility and the following year the show moved to C.Y. Stephens Auditorium to accommodate the large audience.
