Winning fashion designs exhibit opens Monday

Wedding gowns

About 20 winning designs, plus accessories and illustrations, from this month's student-produced fashion show go on exhibit next week in the apparel, merchandising and design program's Mary Alice Gallery. "The Fashion Show 2014" exhibit opens April 28 and runs through Aug. 29 in 1015 Morrill.

At the April 5 event, the "Best in Show" award and its $1,000 cash prize went to senior Whitney Rorah for her collection of white, cream, pink and salmon-colored wedding gowns (pictured). Rorah started the eight-gown collection during fall semester in her senior design studio class and loaned three of the dresses for this exhibit.

An opening reception will be held Monday, April 28 (4:30-6 p.m.) in the gallery. The Mary Alice Gallery is open to the public Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Submitted photo.
