The University of Hawaii Maui College Fashion Technology program presents “Muse(ic)… the Sound of Fashion!”
UH Maui College Fashion Technology students will showcase their hard work on Saturday, April 21, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the center stage at the Queen Ka’ahumanu Shopping Center.
With music as the theme for this year’s show, each student chose a musical genre for their inspiration, and then based their collection on that genre. Musical genres range from classical music, to classic rock and roll, and even electronic.
“The techniques I’ve learned have allowed me to create the clothing I always wanted to make,” said Fashion Technology student, Hilda Howell, in a written statement.
“Attending the Fashion Technology Program has enhanced my life and enhanced my career opportunities,” added Fashion Technology student, Glenna Anderson.
