On Saturday, May 1, Buffalo State College Fashion Technology program presents Runway 3.0, featuring collection by the program’s senior design students, fiber design students, alumni and local designers at the Pierce Arrow Building, 1685 Elmwood Ave.
The theme of Runway 3.0 is Technology, progression and obsession. Runway’s participating designers will apply sociologist Beppe Di Donna’s concept to their designs. According to Di Donna “Our society has become more difficult to stimulate and therefore everything is resorting to extremes to be noticed, experimented, and selected.”
Designers will create a collection that combines elements of design, technology and culture. Their designs will play with the ideas of extremes in fashion, the role of technology in our culture and the revolutionary speed of progress in both fashion and the world today.
Runway 3.0 is directed by Erin Habes, faculty member from the Buffalo State Fashion Technology program. Music by Shock & Awe, as a pulsating light show, and a 50-foot runway will grace the cavernous, architecturally significant space.
