“Chrysalis” – Fashion Show Reflects Direction of New Department and Recently Completed Technology Building

SUNY Buffalo State fashion students are on their way to producing yet another smashing spring fashion show. In fact, this year there are two fashion shows (3:00pm and 8:00 pm), that spotlights the works of the students and gives the community a chance to check out the latest and greatest fashions dreamed up by young Buffalo State designers. In order to make their dreams become reality, the students work with design pros in the community before releasing their works on the runway stage.

For the first time, the Fashion and Textile Technology Department at Buff State is a stand-alone department (instead of a program). The “Chrysalis” theme represents the transformation, as well as the exciting new directions that the department is embarking upon. The newly created department finds its new home inside the recently completed Technology Building (LEED Gold rating – see fly-over).
