On Friday, May 12, 2023, Moore College of Art & Design Fashion Design seniors sent their final collections down the runway at the 2023 Fashion Show, held in a fabulous new venue: The Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History. 

As always, the event was one of Moore’s biggest nights of the year—the culmination of four years of hard work from our talented Fashion Design seniors, who learned and crafted under the leadership and direction of Fashion Design Program Head Daniel Velasco, as well as Moore’s dedicated Fashion Design faculty. All seniors featured in the show also completed a paid industry-related internship and defended their concepts and designs to outside experts in classroom critiques. With 8 one-of-a-kind final collections, it was a night to remember!

Catch up on the highlights from the evening and check out the full recording of the show on our YouTube channel below.
